Since some of the people visiting this page might not be familiar with the concept of a weblog, the links here were available and current in October 2001, the date this article was written. This isn't a constantly-updated list of patterns. The list here will never be updated, regardless of what happens to the sites I've linked to. It represents the state of the Web two years ago when I compiled the list. This site contains three years of archived articles, this being one of them. For more current articles, read my latest entries: Perhaps I'll create a list of new patters as I find them this year.
