Introducing Acceler8or

Like it?

Well, I told you I had some neat things in the works, and today, I’m happy to report that Acceler8or.com, a new website featuring news and original articles about transhumanist and Singularitarian culture, is online and rocking.

The site editor is none other than R.U. Sirius, whom you might remember from his time editing Mondo 2000, or perhaps his collaborations with Timothy Leary, or maybe even from his presidential bid under the banner of The Revolution.

I did the design and implementation of the site, which is based on WordPress, with some rich customizations, and a theme I build from scratch using the Blueprint CSS framework.

Already, there’s articles on the death of music, a new BBC series called All Watched Over By Machines of Loving Grace, and many links to current news of interest to transhumanists, futurists, and technophiles.

I couldn’t be happier with the project, so pay the site a visit, and watch for coming tweaks and improvements as more and more content gets added.

Like the new theme?

As you can see, I’ve implemented a new WordPress theme on ye olde weblog.

It’s a custom-built layout, with a fair amount of typography from the open-source “Alibi” theme, supplemented with some fancy font faces from Google’s font api.

I think it looks cleaner and more modern. What’s your opinion?

New host, new version

So I got extremely frustrated by the inability of my previous webhost to provide me with even the most trivial of support, and I decided to change servers.

However, in the process, I got a little ambitious, decided to upgrade WordPress, and I managed to screw a few things up.  Permalinks, for one.  So any links you may have had to my pages are probably borked right now.

I’m working on getting it fixed.  Sorry for the inconvenience.
