Douglas Bowman:

“After 6 years, 3 months, 3 days, my employment with Wired comes to an end today. What a ride it’s been.

…I’d been following Wired magazine several years prior, and couldn’t pass up the opportunity to move to San Francisco and join this relatively new online experiment called HotWired.”

Wow, only a month after the XHTML / CSS redesign of Wired, Doug’s leaving — but to start his own
business. Best of luck to him — the Wired redesign has been somewhat of an epiphany for me, the
tipping point in changing the way I approach all of my design and coding. It was a monster achievement for him to leave by.

Last night I watched “Charles in Charge”. Seriously.
