The format of this blog is inspired by Daring Fireball, written by John Gruber, who posts features, links and commentary about the technology industry, especially Apple. The design is heavily influenced by Jason Kottke who used a very similar layout and colours between 2005 and 2008, the golden years of blogging. The page-header background pattern is from Hero Patterns.
