This is an interview with Brendan Sera-Shriar (aka @digibomb), an open-source web developer. We caught up with Brendan the night before Confoo at the pub that all the speakers were hanging out at. Brendan was scheduled to give a presentation, as well as sit on a panel. He told us about his new project, CreerMag.com. It’s a magazine aimed at designers and bloggers, and in this first half of our interview with him, he discusses his inspiration for CreerMag.com, what makes the magazine unique, and a few things that designers should take take the time to learn about if they’re interested in designing anything that users are going to interact with.
