Why "FORM DESIGN 2009"???

Dear Friends,
When we talk about the word FORM or when we say word FORM then what comes in our mind?What we see?Can we explain it clearly?I tell you frankly for me , really difficult.Its because when I talk in FORM language I rarely have words to express it.I can't .I have to go to some dictionary to search for the vocabulary.Then I have to search some Internet site looking for some help.But I find no one no where.
Literally speaking there's none site or dictionary that can define the word FORM in terms we want.Specially in design way when the young designers want to express themselves in terms , they have to give a hard time to explore and interpret ate.
So that's the reason why "FORM DESIGN2009" has been created.As I mentioned earlier there hasn't been a single resource on the net where we can interpret ate and explore different meanings of the word "FORM " in design sense.The idea of creating this blog as resource struck to me when I myself went through this course of "ELEMENTS OF FORM" in NID .The experience of my own , what defines a form?How to manipulate it?What creates it? and overall a common question "what exactly is form and what are the different way you express it verbally?"
Finally speaking, I have not created this blog to create a dictionary of word form , mind you.But to create a resource where people from different disciplines can contribute their understanding and learning for the same , so that a useful reservoir like never before can be created which at times can contribute a lot to one's learning. So I request whomsoever reads this to please find a little time in giving what you know and what you think in comments.Even can give useful links and reference books names etc.So welcome!

Thank you
