Hello (new) world 2007/06/25
I now live in San Francisco. I now have a "real" job. As of today, I have started full-time at Flickr in downtown SF. The move from Kentucky/Missouri to California has gone less smoothly than anticipated, but Wednesday will put all that behind me when I get the keys to my apartment and all of my stuff from the movers.
It's a bit nerdy, but this seemed like as good of a time as any to push out a new website. I'm tired of hacking around on my own code for just a blog (I have bigger fish to fry -- more on that later), so I've built this new one on WordPress. The design highlights my inability to choose a good color scheme and my love of the plant motif in design. I will be tweaking the header image as I get better at pixel-art. I will also be releasing the theme soon sans-CSS because I took great care to get the markup semantically correct and XHTML 1.1 validated.
After a lot of debate with myself, I decided the easiest thing to do is to retire the old blog to a new domain and catch the 404's this site generates. So my old blog lives on in all its Rails-y glory at old.richarddcrowley.org.
I hope to think more deeply soon but now I am gearing up for the Avalonstar Grand Prix tonight. I love this city.
