My biggest problem (actually, not my biggest problem). Amongst my biggest problems is the problem that I would rather spend days messing around with the code that powers a blog than actually writing blog posts. I literally spent several minutes today wondering how I would show related posts. A problem that will definitely not rear its head until I have more than one blog post.

Programmers waste enormous amounts of time thinking about, or worrying about, the speed of noncritical parts of their programs, and these attempts at efficiency actually have a strong negative impact when debugging and maintenance are considered. We should forget about small efficiencies, say about 97% of the time: premature optimization is the root of all evil. Yet we should not pass up our opportunities in that critical 3%.

Some classic Donald Knuth Truth for you there.

So in the interest of postponed optimization, here is a blog post.

I don’t know if RSS works yet. I don’t know if anything works yet. The design is a work in progress, roughly inspired by the work of Josef Müller-Brockmann. It doesn’t work on mobile yet. Maybe soon.

Wish me luck.
