At last The Indipendent Publisher theme has arrived on WordPress.com. Developed by Raam Dev this template is one of the cleanest and best content focued theme born in these last two years.
I’ve even adopted it on my self-hosted blog, customizing it a little, translating it and planning to suggest a couple of enhancement to its author. Read Raam’s annouce: Independent Publisher Announced on WordPress.com →
I enjoy it so much that I couldn’t resist but adopt it immediately … now there are going to be some polish here and there, but I think I’ll stick with it for long time.
Here it goes again. I’ve moved away from a classic, 2 columns, WordPress theme to a single column, responsive one. I will see how it goes.
Twenty Fifteen is a great theme, but I wasn’t able to make the most out of it in terms of “reading pleasure” and ease on the eyes. So welcome Hew …
Thanks to a post by Luca Sartoni on his Facebook stream, I got to know the result of this Electronic Frontier Foundation‘s research on the topic:
Who Has Your Back? 2014: When Copyright and Trademark Bullies Threaten Free Speech
This is the premise:
When somebody wants to silence speech, they often use the quickest method available. When the speech is hosted on a major online platform, that method is usually a copyright or trademark complaint. For many years, EFF has worked with people whose lawful speech has been unfairly targeted by these sorts of complaints. We’ve observed that some approaches tend to work better than others in preventing that sort of deliberate abuse, as well as the casual censorship that comes from haphazard and dragnet approaches to policing online infringement.

After no more than fifteen days I’m giving a farewell to the Wilson theme and changed again the theme of this weblog. Wilson had a couple of major issues in scaling and some spaces in the information text of each post. And it was probably a bit too dark for my tastes.
So here’s in action Sela, another free post-formats, responsive theme here on WordPress.com … the silence in these days is due to my ongoing quest to clean all the mess of the Uncategorized category of this blog (which I remembers comes from the defunct Posterous.com import).
As the year runts to its end, the WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 45,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 17 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

… when I test some new themes from WordPress, choosing one that:
- is responsive
- supports as many Post Format as possible
- is free
- appeals my taste
