Yes. Tom Moench invented the 5 colored card system for discussion. I remember his first presentation of the idea, in 1989. (see The Cohousing Handbook for more info, including additional process info contributed by Tom.) Tom had seen or heard of a colored cord system using the same five cards, being used for consensus decision making. If I remember correctly, it was from an intentional community in western Mass.
