New GM Blog Design Inspired by SweetCron

Damian Rintelmann wrote a post today titled “Lifestreaming is it the new blog platform?“. In it he discusses Yongfook’s proclimation that the blog is dead, linking to a video of a presentation he did at Tokyo 2.0 (video embedded below).

Like so many others, Damian goes on to explain how lack of time and the ability to post quickly and easily has made him embrace Lifestreaming and he has incorporated it into his site.

He goes on to say:

I’ve even taken the lifestream approach with a couple of clients. My team recently relaunched the GM FYI blog to be shorter posts and more focused on photos/videos.

Here’s the result

Looks to be very inspired by SweetCron’s design…no?

Here’s Yongfook’s Video presentation at Tokyo 2.0 on 9/1/08

  4. Well the site you list above is a Tumblr site using a theme designed for it here In fact I'm using that theme for my Tumblelog at and although I'm not sure of Tumblr's launch date, I'm pretty sure they've only been around 3 years or so. Just sayin 🙂

    Look, don't mean to criticize, it just seemed a little strong that you were insinuating a rip.
