Adam’s Razor

A Responsive WordPress theme for simple living

You can see the theme in action on this website. The philosophy behind it is something like this:

“Entities must not be multiplied beyond necessity” – this is my application of Occam’s Razor to WordPress theme design. You can spend time on design once you’ve written everything you want to write. Until then… skip to content. It’s extremely light-weight, so before installing too many plug-ins, think of Thoreau: “A man is rich in proportion to the number of things he can afford to let alone.”

Enjoy. Adam.
