“With news of business deals surrounding the Wired brand recently, I went back to have a look at Hotwired only to find it had been completely replaced with some sort of huckster search engine. I started working at Wired Magazine back in 1994. I actually arrived to manage Wired’s AOL presence, but that was quickly scrapped in favor of a Web site. Hotwired was one of the Web’s first commercial sites, and we went through many iterations as new browser technologies emerged. We learned so much in such a short amount of time. I dug into my archives and found all the home page interfaces I worked on back then. Here’s a little trip through the history of those redesigns.”
