With help from the excellent Danny Silverman, here in the Berkman geek cave, the old “Colonel Sanders” banner is now at the top of the new blog.
Seems pretty good to me. What do ya’ll think?

The blockquotes could be a little darker, but I don’t mind, I’m reading it via RSS anyway…
Now, if you could add the COinS metadata plugin, it would make quoting, and saving you a lot easier…
forgot the link:

Whew. Good to have a sense that this is really “The Doc Searls Weblog.” The Berkman crimson and gold felt wrong somehow. I’m welcoming back the “Colonel Sanders” banner!

Just out out of a longish meeting (investments)
Some commentary on Yum Brands and it was noted that KFC is very very popular in China (I recall KFC at the Great Wall in ’93)
So the irony of poppin on your blog and “Colonel Sanders” …
Nice clean layout, but the banner is “comfy” for older readers

Colonel Sanders should be so lucky.

ah branding! have danny change the content column to be 600 px wide to get clean photos, so it doesn’t overlap the side column.

Doc, update the picture. But that’s a small nit, I’m here for your words and great photos.

A little more color contrast would be nice, but other than that — feels like home!

Nice header. I personally prefer the extended width since I have a wide screen LCD. It’s pretty easy to change in the CSS. Just my humble request.

Nice. And the text is readable now.
The name of the banner is “doc_banner.png” which caused Adblock on Firefox to block it. I had to open the blog on IE in order to realize what the problem was.
Another name should be chosen.

It looks wonderful!

At last, Doc’s RSS feed makes sense. I love it. It looks great Doc!

Now that’s what I was talking about. That’s what you and me was talking about.
The French Man will be pleased. I owe you a bucket.

Hey Doc. From an accessibility/readability standpoint you might wanna look into better contrast on the Headings in the sidebar. The light green is a bit light. And the date on the post gets lost. No hassle for me as I (sofar) have ok eyes and sually read the RSS….which, really, in itself is a great accessibility solution right there.
Oh, the “Subscribe to comments” plugin to allow email notifications when you leave a comment on wordpress would be good too.
Fells like home with the ole Colonel banner.

I absolutely love the colors and contrast on the banner. The layout has the typical vertical scroll issue pushing everything down south of the page, but it works just fine.
Very nice work.
