Super nice. Color me jealous.
That makes two of us!
Not sure if having the navigation persist across multiple sites really works, though. Cool idea, but frustrating as UX; on http://andregoncalves.posterous.com/ , for instance, you keep clicking the screened-back owl and Twitter bird, figuring they will take you to his portfolio and Twitter page, respectively.
Agreed. I click the grey silhouettes expecting to go to those links.
Thanks very much for the comments! It´s so great to see my website featured on …zeldman’s website…somebody pinch me:)
Concerning to the navigation on both blog and portfolio, they are just placeholders. I was hoping to upgrade my acounts as soon as possible on posterous
and cargo collective
so I can fully consumize the navigation bar. Oh, also need to scale down the icons properlly :)
Again, thanks for the comments
It looks fantastic, but I agree about the frustrating navigation.
They also open in new windows. Is that acceptable these days? Does anyone else find that annoying?
Looks very nice though.
The page has a real sweet design. but am i missing something or is the whole site ‘just’ one page with links to social networking sites? Maybe that is the point of this post and the blissfully aware post. Web developers, web graphic designers and similiar professionals are shifting away from hosting/developing promo website items (blog, portfolio, resume) on their own site toward using ‘third party’ sites for the various items and linking them together. This approach seems to yield the benefits third party sites offer and the benefits of having your own site. Why recode a portfolio interface, for example, on your own site when one exists for a collective you belong to? But that doesn’t mean you can’t have your own site as well.

I’ve written about that very phenomenon:
The Vanishing Personal Site, 27 April 2008
After I posting that I realized I probably just had a ‘welcome to 2007′ moment. Thanks for the reference.
Hmm, I don’t see what all the fuss is about. Nice site, nothing earth shattering.
