Rutledge's NYT "design redux" gets real

WooThemes launches theme based on Rutledge's redux - I wrote in July about Andy Rutledge's design redux getting slammed by journo-tweeters after he wrote a scathing post (which has since been deleted from the web) about news design. While many of his points were spot-on, it was frustrating for those of us at newspapers who know there are a lot more politics and technical integration issues that go into website design than meet the eye. This week, though, premium WordPress theme developers at WooThemes launched Currents, a WordPress news theme based almost exactly of Rutledge's initial design. Worth checking out.
