Rather than posting something new this week, I’ve decided to step back and clean up a few of the darker corners of the site.

Since this new direction is focused on the relationship between visuals and content, I’ve started including big thumbnails of each entry on the archive pages to give people a different way to browse through articles.

Articles now have individual comment RSS feeds so you can follow along with a discussion. These feeds, and comment posting, remain active for a month. You can find the RSS link at the top right of the comment block. Additionally, I’ve included a hide/show box of quick tips for Textile syntax above the comment field.

Lastly, I’ve beefed up the Recommended Reading section by giving each book its own page (like so). I’m planning on dumping a slew of new recommended books in there very soon. Now back to your regularly scheduled broadcast.


Commenting is not available in this section entry.
