@niconiconi In the 90's I used to work upstairs from Wired's San Francisco office. Around the time of the (first) .com bust, a friend gave me a "Tired/Wired" parody shirt that read "Tired/Wired/Fired". In the halls, I could always tell who worked at Wired because they'd scowl at me.
I also did a little work for Vivid, but it wasn't in that building, so I'm not sure when that would have been.
