One of Edward Tufte‘s mantras is “Zero out the interface,” and I took that to heart when I “redesigned” this site by removing everything extraneous—header imagery, lines, categories, a few widgets, inline green links—and added lots of whitespace. I’m not a designer, but I love clean, simple, and uncluttered page layouts, so this new look feels better to me. I’ll probably continue to tweak as I go. Let me know if anything seems broken. Curious WordPress nerds, I’ve uploaded the code that runs this site to GitHub.
