Jason Kottke: kottke.org redesign, 2012 version. I have to say, the Tumblr mirror is very well done, and it makes a lot of sense (although as a minor quibble, it does mean variant URLs).

For the context: Duhigg wrote about data mining for the Times (as quoted here previously), but the article came to the public’s attention largely through a summary of some of the more interesting parts in Forbes.
