Wired News staffers suffered for years under the reign of Lycos before Cond Nast bought them this summer and reunited them with Wired Magazine (whose offices were, at the time of purchase, across the hall). Michael Calore of Wired News says:
We had a little party at Wired. We got together with the magazine folks and tore down the Lycos sign that's been hanging outside the Wired News office door since the Conde Nast acquisition.
Then we shattered it with a hammer.
