About This Site

This site started out around late 1993 or early 1994 when I worked at MIT, primarially as a way to learn about web site design and HTML. It grew over time, and every once in a while I take a look at it and move things around. Now it is a mix of personal stuff, as well as a place to put writings that I have published. I added the books page when I realized that I kept recommending the same books to people.

I try to keep the site simple with few pictures (except on pages that are mostly for photos). This is partly to make it easy to maintain, and partly to make it more likely that the page will work with any web browser. My suggested books page has some of my favorite books on web design. I use Cascading Style Sheets for presentation effects, but the pages should still be viewable if your browser does not support CSS. I also use Apache Server Side Includes.

Some technical details:
