Site Migration and Redesign

With the expert help of Cord Blomquist, we are moving the site from MovableType to WordPress in the next 12-24 hours. You will soon see a redesigned site that is quicker to load and, we think, cleaner and more attractive. There will also be some nice features that are invisible to the reader but will help optimize the site for search engines and maintain RSS feeds, among other things.

We won’t be posting until the migration is finished. There may be hiccups and wrinkles in the process. Please email us or leave a comment if you see something amiss.

    Adano: The blogroll was an inadvertent omission. I’ve added it back. Thanks.
