Patterns Of Repetition

Cummins Site
Her website continually talks about changing or saving lives. The layout is very repetitious, text is justified to the left and any photos would be on the right. Her name (logo) is placed mostly in the upper left hand corner of the site, the only page that has it on the bottom left is the home page. All photos appeal to the audience, she has two that have children from Africa in them, one of her as a child playing around with things, and then either her with her inventions or awards. Each photo has something that would draw a persons attention. She also has very few links, probably to keep the observer focused on her and her inventions, what links she does have are links that allow the observer to contact her.

Stallman Site
His website has a continual use of links and bullet lists. He also uses suggestive language through out the whole website, always stating his opinion so when the reader goes to the link they know his thoughts. He also uses bold headings for each section he has created.

Patters of Sequencing

Cummins Site
Her website starts off with the home page that introduces her to the reader. Then the tabs at the top continue to go to the page that is about her and what she does, and what she is currently doing and it goes in order from basic information to more complex information until the end where she gives her contact information.

Stallman Site
He put his personal statement first letting people know it was his personal website and that it was all his ideas only. Then instead of putting his bio first like Emily Cummins he places all of his information he wants to share about politics, second on the page. Then after he has shared all of his links and opinions he shares his photos and bio and thanks to everyone. And then at the very end is his copyright.

Patterns of Omission

Cummins Site
She does not put anything very personal on the website, keeps it very professional. All of the photos are professional instead of candid action photos of her in a possible normal day setting, or even working on her inventions.

Stallman Site
He does not share the opposing view of the information he is giving out, just his point of view and only information that supports his views. He also has no personal life depicted on the website, professional image. Only has links of photos to himself, so his homepage does not really have any photos of him except for the small one by his Bio.

Anomalies to Patterns

Cummins Site
The reader of the site would expect to see a photo on the Speaking tab of her website and there is not one there. Also every photo had her in it except for the last one on her contact tab.

Stallman Site
Stallman switches from 1st person to 3rd person throughout the website, even though mostly it is in 3rd person. Stallman also starts his website off with a three column outline but then it shifts to bullet listing after a short time.

Patterns of Relationships

Cummins Site
She set it up for the reader of the website. Wants to have a connection with the viewer. She is consistent with her organization therefore ensuring the validity of her site and her information.

Stallman Site
His website is set up for him specifically, his organization does not make it really welcoming to the viewer. His relationship with the viewer is not there because he sticks to his ideals and what he wants to show instead of appealing to what a variety of people may want to see. What relationship he does have with the viewer is drawn in to a specific audience through similar political views
