A new theme which we released last week. You can checkout a demo or purchase at the MuthCo site. The theme has custom post types for Quotes, Pictures, Links in addition to regular Posts. The theme also has a custom Options panel where you can set logo, light or dark color scheme, social feeds, Google Analytics and Google Adsense. We’re working on getting a slimmed down version called Typographic Basis published in the official WordPress theme directory so keep your eyes peeled there as well.

I hope it’s still obvious, however, I feel compelled to declare: humans are better. They are better than algorithms, robots, automation, derivative formulas, trade triggers, ubiqutous cameras, increasing processor speed, et al.
