New Look!

Much about this blog has bothered me since the beginning. I've looked at all the various blogging engines and I hate them all. For a while I considered building my own blogging engine, but ultimately decided not to because it turns out as an economist I care more about comparative advantage than clean minimalist web design.

The new look sports a material design lite template—you can check out the MDL project here.

One of the things I often lament is that too many of my posts are walls of text with no visuals, so I decided on a photo-heavy theme. Of course, producing good graphics for every post is more work than I can afford to put into blogging these days, so my compromise was to build random photo picker. Ultimately all of the photos came from an old project from my publishing days that I never was able to publish, so here they are.

Hopefully I've not left any important components out of the redesign. I guess if the RSS isn't working none of you will see this, but in the off chance you do, let me know if anything broke, and I will fix it.
