History of Patterns for Personal Web Sites

Version 1

2002-06-18: The first version of this set of patterns. An archive of this version is available in zip format (95K).

Version 2

2003-07-08: The first major revision. New patterns were added, others removed, and two were renamed. All patterns were reviewed, and many were revised to some degree.

Changes to patterns


  • Reward Visitors
  • Reward Return Visitors
  • Reward Exploration

These three quasi-patterns were removed because they didn't fit the definition of a pattern, which is a solution to a problem in a context. These quasi-patterns were stated as directives, rather than being what they should have been: the results of a good pattern language.



Other changes

  • Added a map showing how the patterns relate to each other
  • Revised most pages
