See You in a Couple of Weeks Will BRB

I won’t be posting anything here for a couple of weeks. In the meantime, feel free to peruse the archives or fall in love with my most popular posts all over again.

And hey, amigos — turn those frowns upside down. I’ll be back before you know it.

A New-Look

UPDATE (August 18): I’ve done some additional tweaking and settled upon a design. Finally. I invite RSS subscribers to click through and view the updated in all of its newfound graphical glory.

UPDATE (August 9): I’ve changed the design. Again. Sadly, not everyone shared my passion for the ultra-minimalist layout I was using a few days ago. And alas, dear readers, I ultimately strive to serve you. So I’ve adopted something a bit more exciting (yet still understated). Hope you like it.

As you can see, I’ve tweaked the design of It’s not a major overhaul; I’ve just made some minor changes here and there. Usability, clean lines, and white space still reign supreme.

I’m still fixing some bugs, so if anything seems amiss, please let me know. And if you’re viewing this from from an RSS reader, please do click through to the site and give me your thoughts. Comments for this post are turned on.

More soon… Will Return on Wednesday Will BRB

I won’t be posting anything here until Wednesday. See you then, friends.

RSS in Plain English

You may recall my friends Lee and Sachi, who I met up with here in Bangkok last year. They’ve finished their year-long round-the-world trip and are back in Seattle working on social design and online community issues. And they’ve just created an informative video that explains RSS in plain English. Check it out.

And if you’re not already subscribed, grab my RSS feed! Paste this URL into your favorite RSS reader (I prefer Google Reader) or click the RSS feed button over there on the left, below the search box.

RSS has fundamentally changed my interaction with the Web, and I’m eager for more folks to take advantage of the technology, too.
