This is my current personal website. It replaces my old personal website which was in German only.
This website aggregates what I do online and also offline. It shows my activity on the web and stuff that I've made.
It's a result of my interest in Web Technologies and a playground for experimenting with them.
The most interesting part of this website is that it lives completely in the cloud.
Instead of hosting it on a rented web server, it runs on Google App Engine. Instead of implementing the storage for the content on this website it uses other services for the storage and only presents the information using those service's APIs or just screen-scraping them.
The lifestream is provided by my FriendFeed, the rest runs on App Engine.
creation of the design
There were actually completely different design ideas before the current one. They have been thrown away because they either weren't realizable or just looked ugly.
The current design also has some evolutionary stages which you can follow below.
Added colours, header design and top-level navigation items.
Finished header and navigation, added footer.
Minor changes to the header, decided on font and sidebar colour, created headline decoration, added background decoration.
