<content type="html"><![CDATA[<p>Welcome to the new look TailoredShapes blog.</p>
<p><a href="http://thoughtworks.com">ThoughtWorks</a> are encouraging me to blog more
frequently via weekly &#8220;Blog Nights&#8221; to improve my writing and also to
get my thinking more constructively about the technologies I&#8217;m using.</p>
<p>I&#8217;m now using the delighful <a href="http://octopress.org">Octopress</a> for site generation rather than
<a href="http://wordpress.org">Wordpress</a>. My reasons for switching are:</p>
<ul>
<li><strong>Editor:</strong> Now I can use <a href="http://code.google.com/p/macvim/">mvim</a> with <a href="https://github.com/carlhuda/janus">Janus</a> or <a href="http://www.sublimetext.com/2">Sublime Text 2</a> rather than a
web interface or basic app for blog generation. This is a nerd thing. I
used these editors all day and my fingers have gotten used to the
keyboard shortcuts.</li>
<li><strong>Version Control:</strong> Backed by <a href="http://git-scm.com/">git</a> and <a href="https://github.com/">github</a> backing up and working from multiple, heterogeneous machines is a breeze.</li>
<li><strong>Simple and Powerful:</strong> It&#8217;s <em>just</em> some clever rake scripts holding
together some semantic HTML5 templates and markdown with the ability
to create plugins. I should be able to customize this to my hearts
content and not worry too much about performance.</li>
<li><strong>Free hosting:</strong> Free hosting on <a href="https://github.com/">github</a>,
<a href="http://www.heroku.com/">Heroku</a> or you can <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rsync">rsync</a>. Yay!</li>
</ul>
<p>So far I really like it.</p>
