I would love to do this.
A couple months ago I published beaverbrook.com, a photo blog about a forest in Upstate New York where I spend a lot of time with friends. It’s my happiest place on Earth!
The custom Tumblr theme I made features big images spanning the entire browser window. Some people said they wanted the same theme, too, so I posted a call for help to help me polish the theme to accomodate all post types.
It took a bunch of back and forth, and David Cole, John Holdun and I finally wrapped up version 1.0 last weekend. All post types are formatted to fit nicely, one entry per browser view. I call it Slides and you can play with it here.
You can make it your theme for $49. The price is high to keep volume low (less customer support), and all profits go to Beaver Brook to continue the forest regeneration program I started there. If there’s enough I’d love buy a few more neighboring acres to preserve even more woods (that would make me so proud!).
I’m excited to see what you do with it. Otherwise, thanks for the feedback and love.
Notice how Fahey is able to distill a chapter’s worth of material into a single page. You can compare and contrast the three drinks by glancing quickly around the drawing. In other words: You’re learning! Here understanding is imparted more effectively, more efficiently, than a well-worded written description would have done. In short, this is what infographics should be used for - imparting understanding in a way that the written word can not.
This is good. Also, nice pun, Mark.
The most amazing skiing video you’ve seen in a while. And it’s not what you think it is.
Did you know it costs the U.S. Mint about 1.8 cents to make one penny? This snappy YouTube video from C. G. P. Grey explains why pennies are bad for the economy and should be discontinued. What do you think?
