Another great episode from The Big Web Show.

Looking outside your own product category when researching for a redesign. Quick view and other functions. What Netflix has to do with a recipe site. The founding of Epicurious as a website in 1995. How Instagram, Pinterest, and mobile devices have changed the way people interact with web content. The view from the 33rd floor of One World Trade Center. Finding inspiration in unexpected places.

One of my favorite episodes of The Big Web Show
