This is the 5th iteration of this site’s design since it began in 2005. Some notes below:


The body is set in Robert Slimbach’s excellent Minion Pro, while the headlines are set in Carol Twombly and Slimbach’s Myriad Pro Condensed. Both are served by the fine folks at Typekit.

Web Standards

This site is written in HTML5, uses CSS3 for design & layout, and a few bits of JavaScript (including jQuery and Modernizr). Any use of Flash is embarrassing and probably YouTube related.


This site (and my job) is powered by WordPress, the open-source publishing platform that rules the web. It’s based on Ian Stewart‘s Toolbox and otherwise coded by hand in TextMate on a Mac.
