One Fine Jay is a personal, self-published news and opinion web magazine* run on WordPress. I sometimes refer to the site as a blog, but it’s not entirely accurate. The medium itself has changed by far from when it was popularized by Dave Winer years ago.
Levesque is 2011′s theme.
The theme is named after and dedicated to Elyse Levesque, one of the lead actresses in the recently canceled Stargate: Universe. The layout is quite different from my two previous years’ themes. Still not decided on orange as a color but I shipped the design on June 1, 2011 anyway. I also added my blogroll to the footer, and gone are the welcome message and the sidebar that contained it. The headers’ font is Museo Sans, a slender typeface that complements Georgia.
Does this site look weird to you?
This is the first production-level site I shipped using HTML5 elements. It uses a shiv to create these elements in IE versions less than 9. This site works in modern browsers.
A short history of my cameras: pre-2004, Olympus D-380, 2MP point and clack. Until March 2005, Sony DSC P73. Until June 2006, Sony W1. Since then, an Olympus E-500 digital SLR.
Copyright and permissions
The CSS used in the designs and themes of this site have been developed through self-learning and studying the CSS of other sites. I do not lay claim to any pioneering techniques. That said, the totality of the designs that I employ—the look and feel itself—is mine and mine alone, unless I have given permission for its use. Please do not rip off my designs and my aesthetics. The positioning rules are quite common though. If you think you could learn a lot by studying my CSS, go ahead.
Please do not quote my writeups in their entirety unless they are so short (say, a paragraph, or three) that quoting them would be meaningless. Judicious use of direct quotation is the hallmark of a good writer. Always give credit; even newspapers that quote blogs do those.
Finally, I retain copyright on all original photography and images. I credit images that I fair-use for the purposes of commentary. Contact me for permission on the use of my photographs for any purpose, and we’ll talk about licensing.
