Reboot 2014: Cleaning Out the Cobwebs

Apparently my desire to write blog posts has a recurrence interval of 4 years.

While cleaning out one of my old servers, I came across this blog. It looked sad and lonely, so I decided to give it a new coat of paint. This website is sill generated by the Jekyll static site generator, but now the content is all dressed in a theme that is much better than the unfinished work I had applied to the last incarnation. The new theme is named Lanyon, created by Mark Otto, and I like the clean simplicity very much. For me the design evokes some of the typographical style of Edward Tufte or Mike Bostock which provides some fertile ground for experimentation if I ever return to graphic design.

For now, the blog sits like an empty suit that needs some content to dress up.
