Wired launches redesigned website
Scott Dadich, the editor of Wired magazine, writes about the redesign of its website.
Dadich writes, “Even if you don’t notice any of that turboboosting, you’ll see an updated, simpler information architecture and site taxonomy. The original Hotwired was organized under the banner of six bright icons. We’ve picked up on that legacy with our six new section fronts: Business, Design, Entertainment, Gear, Science, and Security. A world-class team of editors and reporters, experts in their fields, runs each desk. Starting today, we’re going to update the site more frequently; the new section fronts should become your dashboards for the day’s news and feature stories. Even our physical newsroom reflects these changes; our offices are set up to facilitate communication and collaboration among our editors, designers, and developers. The team has a new metabolism to power the new site.
“But we didn’t design the new WIRED to be perfect. We designed it to be perfected. We’ll continue to make the technology faster and more powerful, the stories more informative and more fun. In the process, I’m sure you’ll find areas we can improve. I hope you’ll let us know about them. We’re trying to make better stuff in cooler ways more often. We believe we’ve created both the tools and the platform for WIRED to grow and evolve as fast as the technologies we cover. And if we’ve done our jobs, we will inspire you—the most connected and influential minds on the planet—to embrace what’s next. Everything is changing. Get ready. Get WIRED.”
