Discussing the interview

Interesting discussion over at Web Word about the interview with Jesse James Garrett. Folks are debating his point about why people don't know the names of the folks behind the design and usability of sites like Amazon.

Actually, I do know the name of one of their designers, who has corresponded with me about some of my comments about Amazon's designs. So they are out there, just quietly toiling away doing cool things.
