Today I was telling Jake that yours was the best designed site on the Internet.
I especially love this old post, in which some of your design philosophy is laid bare for the reader.
I still cite the comparison to a tag on a pair of jeans as a clear design metaphor. However, when you wrote the post, you were referencing the post that filled the frame. But 8 years later, the frame is gone, having been turned over a few times. Next time you write a redesign post, I recommend including a screenshot. It may appear to be so meta it hurts, but it future-proofs the design conversation.
