I’m a big fan of what the Layer Vault team have built in Designer News. It’s not as big a community as its obvious inspiration Hacker News, but it’s quite vibrant on its own, and I’ve found myself spending lots of time there over the past couple of years with rewarding results.

I answered a bunch of questions about Wildcard, building a career in design, what I’ve learned over the years, my tenure at The New York Times, and more. Officially, the AMA lasts only for an hour or two, but as long as the DN team keeps the thread open, I’ll keep answering questions.
