In the summer of 2000 I worked as a designer at Wired
Digital. It was my first job working on a .com product
rather than doing agency work. Carrying out a design required discipline, lots
and lots of testing under tight deadlines, and communicating with a whole entourage
of product managers, production kids, design directors, department heads etc.
I worked mainly on Lycos Music, mainly designing components, though I helped out some with Animation Express and I'm still getting around to writing that Webmonkey article... I'm not sure what I can actually talk about because of the NDA that I signed, but the snacks they gave me sure tasted good. Working with all the cool people on Webmonkey I'd been admiring for the past three years was pretty rad.
