Acknowledgments

Acknowledgments

We give thanks to all the designers who have come before us, our spouses, the team of dedicated visionaries at NetRaker, and our colleagues and students at the University of California, Berkeley, who gave us early feedback on this work. We would especially like to thank Mark Newman, whose study of Web designers was the basis for the design process that we describe in Chapter 5. We thank the people who participated in the CHI 2000 Workshop on Design Patterns for their comments on our early ideas. We also thank Christopher Alexander, who originally developed the concept of design patterns in A Pattern Language: Towns, Buildings, Construction (Oxford University Press, 1977).

Several people helped with the final production of the book. We would like to thank Mary O'Brien, our editor at Addison-Wesley. Thanks especially to Dianne Jacob for helping create the proposal and editing many versions of the book. Thanks to Tyrrell Albaugh for smoothing the production of the book, which was also much improved by Stephanie Hiebert, who copyedited our draft. Special thanks to Colleen Stokes for her initial cover and pattern format designs. Thanks to Sarah Vilaysom for her extensive help with collecting, editing, organizing, and managing the images in the book. And thanks to Matthew Tarpy for his help in collecting several of the screen shots illustrating the patterns and to Mandy Erickson for obtaining permissions to use these images here. We appreciate the many reviewers who gave us great feedback on the drafts of this work, including Mitchel Ahern, Linda Brigman, John Cilio, Sunny Consolvo, Sally Fincher, Åsa Granlund, Jeff Johnson, Jef Raskin, Ross Teague, Ken Trant, Maya Venkatraman, Pawan Vora, John Wegis, and Terry Winograd.
