I don't know why I'm blogging and not watching basketball right now, but I assure you I have the scoreboard up and running in another tab. That makes me less of a geek, right?

Anyway, I'm trying to play catch-up with my feed subscriptions and I just noticed that my favorite web design is no more. Dan Cederholm has redesigned his site, SimpleBits, and it looks great. I don't like it as much as the previous design, but I do like it a lot. One thing I noticed right off the bat is he's gone with a subheader kind of like what I have in place here (at the time of writing). I like the new color scheme a lot and I think the idea of moving some of the sidebar content down to the footer area is a pretty good one.

For fellow fans of the previous design, not to worry. I've actually stolen some of the ideas from that design for a new/old site I'm currently working on. So those innovations won't fall by the wayside. I can't promise they'll improve, though, either. Afterall, Dan is the man and in a league of his own when it comes to solid, inspirational web design.
