Today I have opted to convert my personal site and blog into a purely static website. This is quite a dramatic change, and definitely a departure from the previous Wordpress site. My choice in making this change is a result of my growing awareness of minimal web design.
The new design of the site is heavily influenced by the personal site of Chris Were, who has made a number of YouTube videos on the topic of the bloated nature of the modern web.
The gains the internet makes in increased bandwidth and browser improvements are offset by larger page sizes, unnecessary dependencies and increasingly inefficient programming practises. This is not to say that developments in the web cannot be positive, I just believe that websites should be fit for purpose.
