I'm one of those people who constantly likes change. That change is often in the name of optimization. A new Vim keybind for a command I execute often while working. A new shell alias to get to a config file I find myself editing often. Working at the speed of thought is a very satisfying thing. When it came to building a personal website, I took a similar approach by stealing hints from all my favorite CSS layouts and gluing them together to make my own. Here is the list:
This website, which speaks for itself.
58 Bytes of CSS looks great everywhere is another example in the same vein, but less extreme.
HackerNews because I stare at it so much the design is somewhat etched in my brain.
This Guy for being another evangelist on the topic of website obesity.
The Older YouTube landing pages get an honorable mention because they have a nice homey feel to them. Maybe this is just me realizing that I'm not a kid anymore.
