Welcome to 4.0. I have actually been working on this version for a while now, having started the design of it back in April 2008. This is a far cry from when I pulled an all-nighter to get version 1.0 up back in 1999 when I applied for a job at USWeb/CKS.

The goal with v4.0 was to convert it from being primarily a portfolio to being primarily a blog. The portfolio still has a strong presence but I felt that I needed an outlet for just random thoughts about things I’m interested in. This was before I discovered Twitter, but it’s still a valid goal.

This site uses the same backend as v3.0—the excellent ExpressionEngine. The markup and CSS were coded by hand using lovely tools like TextMate and CSSEdit. More details available in the colophon.
