Goodbye Sploid…

Last week Sploid closed its doors. I’m not upset only because it was an entertaining take on news and managed a great balancing act between tabloid and real news.

I’m also upset because I can no longer enjoy its great design. It’s looks nothing like a typical blog:
lots of images laid out on a grid instead of just a list of articles. Big, SCREAMING headlines. It’s a lesson that there are ways to make a good, useable design while not looking like wordpress template with new colors.

    Hello Dan, my name is Melanie. I am from Ohio. I was just wondering if you are the Dan Lucas I grew up with many years ago. If not, sorry to have bothered you. If you are Dan from Hubbard and Boardman, Ohio….then how the hell R U?!

    I doubt it… While I did spend some time in Newark, OH, I’ve pretty much lived here in NC forever. Good luck finding the other Dan Lucas!
