This website has accumulated a lot of cruft since 1997, when I first launched it. And I've made some code improvements and colour changes, but the basis of this site design is also still the same as it was almost seven years ago, when I last reworked it in any serious, non-incremental way. Looking back, the more minimalist versions of what I have here are better than now.
It's time for a ground-up rethink of this site's design. I don't intend to delete anything—I hate linkrot, so I just want a visual and usability redesign, while maintaining whatever makes this site, er, penmachiney. I'll start thinking about what to do. Suggestions (or full-on mockups) are welcome!
P.S. Like many, I admire John Gruber's approach, at least as a starting point.
