No, there’s no particular reason. Just a whim I had. And, of course, most of you probably read the site on some other aggregator, so you’ll never notice, which is fine with me.
Long ago, I posted a lot of wine reviews, and the site theme made a certain amount of sense. I don’t remember the last time I posted a wine review.
More and more, the site isn’t even technically focused, but tends towards poetry and random notes. So the theme is composed of scans of my moleskine cahier notebook, and the title is the title of my first book of poetry, which some of you saw at ApacheCon last month.
Unfortunately, notesinthemargin.com is already another site. Maybe I’ll come up with another name later.
