Shaun Inman, a major force in sIFR, the man behind Mint, and a very nice guy whom I had the pleasure of talking to earlier this year, once again redesigned his site. And it’s damn interesting change.

While his process of designing in the browser first and then going to Photoshop for only minimal pixel art ain’t much different than the very site you are reading (I’m so ahead of my time), his algorithm for color coding content according to its relationship to the present is quite original.

I found it intriguing that he is thinking about the proliferation and inevitable obsolescence of content on the Internet and the challenge of communicating relevancy of information to visitors that may not know the whole history of development who happen upon older techniques or opinions.

I’m not sure this is the best answer to that question, but it is a fascinating solution, worthy of consideration.
