All of us should have a personal website that showcases our mental and physical powers so we can challenge, push, inspire and evolve each other into a more perfect union of free individuals.

I have been working on this website for the last 12 years, since I got my first real laptop in 2003 when I was teaching English in Santiago, Chile. The first project I worked on was for my English Teaching Website which turned into this when I moved back to America in 2007.

With a consistent and original internet language I have created many informative pages such as my Complete History Timeline, and spread my original Educational ideas such as Bikeversity and Fantasylandia.

The design of my website style is to Condense information in a consistent way so it can be absorbed quickly and navigated easily. The best way to display a lot of information in a small area is by removing dead space & replacing redundant words with Colors and Fonts. If the website is consistent in it's design than it becomes a new language that people can learn to interperate and become inspired use to create their own personal website languages.

My Website Language consists of four categories: 1 Two Side Columns Page, 2 Five Column List, 3 Color & Number Coding, and 4 Accronym, Font & Border Coding.

The Two Side Columns Page design is the most easily recognizable original aspect of my website. It has three columns, one in the center for text and two 20% columns on either side for images. It is the best way to condense the text and photos together in a symmetrical way because the sizes accross are perfect for both text and photos. This layout works great on handhelds also because you can expand the text in the middle to make the text bigger as well as the photos.

The screen minus 600 Pixels is the perfect width for text because the computer is too wide for the eye to track back so the space on either side of the text in the middle is the logical place to put the photos. You can have photos line the entire length of the page this way, and photos in the middle blend in well because they look nice placed in the middle among the text between the photos on the side.

20% side columns is the perfect width for images because you can see the details of the picture and it isn't too big and taking up too much of the page. This way the photos can all be the same size which is good because it helps the page appear consistent visually which aids in keeping the general layout and thought pattern of the page consistent. The images are stored on Flickr so you can see the original size by clicking them.

When there are two columns of images and/or charts on either side of the text, it helps put a good visual frame around it that aids the focus of attention on the center of the page and keeps the thought clear. It can have the effect of making the text look like it has less words than what people are used to with the words so spread out.

List Layering

The Five Column List relies on two concepts to make it the best list design: 1 It condenses the most and 2 is the most symmetrical.

It condenses the most because 20% of a page is the width you would need for the average sentence in a list, so the word to page ratio is maximized, which allows one to see more of the list in the screen and allowing you to absorb the big picture.

It is symmetrical because it has a column in the middle to center your focus on, with two columns on either side. The number five can be symmetrically muliplied. For example, 5 to 25 or 100 to 500 to 2,500 are easy numbers to wrap one's head around because of their symmetricity. Numbers involving five can be easily converted into even numbers, such as 5X2=10, or 25X4=100.

List Layering

I utilize list layering with my Audio History books as a way of putting book chapters within chapters. You can see in the diagram to the left which list or lists the current list is on top of because you can see the mother list's color around the edges. When one list is on top of many lists you can see all of the parent lists because their colors are seen sequentially.

The Five Column List encourages Category Creation

Words can be packed together very densely on the five column list, so this makes it possible to fit more lists within this format; this in turn encourages the creation of more and more lists. The more lists the better. A list is a comprehensive grouping of similar objects. When you unite the completeness of a list with the habit of creating categories for everything, you have a system of lists within lists, folders within folders or categories within categories. Categories divide large collections of information into units of smaller organized information packets that can be retained in the brain because they have a name and a number assigned to them.

Categories should be created based off of the natural model of how our mind is used to thinking. The best way to find which numbers to use in dividing things into categories is the way the Roman Empire divided their Military and Civil Government. They had Tent groups of Ten guys, and there were ten of them in a Century which had 100 men. I organize things similarly. I have ten colors to represent the ten numbers from one to ten. My one page list consists of 100. Similar to our mind's natural way of dividing things, my lists are usually between 10 and 100 in size so you can remember each list as well as the contents of each list so that you have a good map to aid in memorizing the subject in it's entirety.

Densely packed categories that are in turn divided in regular intervals into smaller categories is a clear way to travel in and out of the detail of a subject and related subjects because of it's symmetry, uniformity and density.

The importance of making pages dense with information should not be overlooked. When you can see the entirety of something without having to scroll down to complete your absorbtion of what the list or chart has to teach, then it is easier to hold your imaginative thinking that can absorb the data in it's entirety.

The list in the right column is a good example of the benefits of a list of things that have something in common. The thing that the subjects of the list on the right have in common is that they all are the subjects of their own lists of similar size that are on my site.

My philosophy is everything on my website has to have a number attached to it because numbers create a place to put units of information so you know where to find them when you need them.

It helps to attach colors to numbers for the visual thinkers. Every number from one to ten on my site has a color assigned to it according to the rainbow. The colors that I chose are the closest that I had available to me to make it look like a rainbow. I color the background of the field in my list according to it's number. One larger lists I color the title of the list with the appropriate color.

When colors are attached to numbers it makes it easier to remember what number something is in a list or a chart is because you can use it's color to help you remember.

It is good to have colors attached to numbers because it brings to life the look and feel of the pages and increases the opportunity to color code things in a way that helps condense and simplify the contents of the page. Color Coding lists also helps visualize the progresion of the list in groups of ten as you see the rainbow repeat itself. This allows you to connect the concept of the numbers one, as represented by the color, ten as represented by the rainbow, 20 as represented by the units in a column and 100 as represented by the five column list of 100.

Having numbers attached to colors helps to visually show the pattern of lists that are related to charts. You can see this effect with charts I made having to do with my History Timeline.

Accronym, Font & Border Coding is something that I mainly use on my Complete History Timeline page to illustrate the 11 Historical Event Types, the 9 Event Causes and the 99 Event History Categories.

For my Bike Racer Levels page and the rest of my website I color code page size based on 250 words a page in the font and color that you see this word 250. Time is displayed like this 4:20.

If I ever decide to make charts more elaborate I can take from the font and border designs on my Timeline.
