New Blog Framework

As you may have noticed our blog appearance has been changed recently. We switched from Tumblr to self-hosting using Octopress.

There are several reasons:

  • we have full control over the styling of the blog
  • we have full control over when and where we load various resources, i.e. we can delay loading of stuff until people scroll down
  • we can see how the post will look like before we publish it
  • it’s way cooler than tumblr :)
