I recently stumbled upon the new design of iA Writers Blog. I really like the idea of using the extra space of today’s screens with sidenotes for additional explanations, references, links, and even for headlines:
As it seems the idea is based on a design concept by Edward Tufte who uses sidenotes (and even side-graphics) heavily in his scientific books and papers. There is a CSS who shows this in action for websites:
Has anyone already tried to implement a plugin that creates sidenotes (e.g. by using a new kirbytag)?
