December 13, 2023 – Denver, Colorado

Pattern Research, Inc., the business, closed at the end of 2022. You still can email us, Leif Smith ( and Pat Wagner (

However, we are keeping Pattern Research, the idea. In 2024, we’ll be reviving this website as a place for Leif and Pat to post thoughts related to the philosophy of “Seeking Patterns, Making Connections.” You’ll also be able to link to the new websites where Pat will be posting her creative work, family photos and stories, and her thoughts on politics, government, voluntarism, and the intertwined helixes of freedom (choice) and personal responsibility (ethics).

Best wishes. Here is to the better future we all deserve. 

Thanks to Kemp Resources for keeping our web resources safe and sane.
