This is just a quick little page that will have some examples of notes used in the Tufte style.

Anyway, I hope thisMargin notes can be used for more than just putting information about a particular article. works or I'm going to have to work on it some more.

Also, I've got to work on sidenotes as well.

Something else that I want to work on...

hey

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

What do I want the site to look like?

#website #tufte #design

I just wanted to take a moment to write about what I want my new website to look like. I've been hee-hawing it for years now and I'm starting working on it again. I've found some inspiration in using the Tufte style1 and I'll be documenting my changes on this very site. It gives me something to look every time I open up a new safari window.

Some of the Styles

As you'll notice the site should be some what simple because I'm learning how to add all the features in pelican using liquid tags. I was thinking about adding a plugin to pelican to turn footnotes into side notes, but I'll hold that off until I get some time to really play with the site design.

Continued Goals for the Site

I still have a desire to teach and help people. I've also found that one of those people should be myself. I want to show code examples.

print "hello, world"

I'm hoping to have some simple animations and just other stuff.

But first, I'd like to make the site functional on my own.


  1. Honestly, I came across the Tufte CSS project and then looked for more information about the guy on his webpage and wikipedia
