Derivative Works from Daniel X. O'Neil

« June 2011 | Main

This Page Has Moved. [ TypePad --> WordPress ]

So I ported this site, with more 1,200 posts over 8 years, over to Wordpress. The URL is the same (http://www.derivativeworks.com/), but the RSS feed has changed (http://www.derivativeworks.com/feed).

I'll leave the lament for later (I was and sort of always will be a TypePad fanboy), but for now I'll just say that the design flexibility and built-in features of the 30 or so WordPress sites I've built finally just caught up with my own personal home.

Please update and let me know if you do— it's always nice to hear from old friends after you've moved!
