Wired changes design, breaks URLs

Wired.com just rolled out a new design, and in doing so, broke URLs that worked just a few hours earlier. Their Bruce Lee Lives On article which originally appeared at http://www.wired.com/news/culture/0,73022-0.html now returns a “Content Not Found”. The new URL is at http://www.wired.com/entertainment/hollywood/news/2007/03/bruce_lee0323.

How does a major website do a redesign and break URLs? That’s so 1998. It’s not like they don’t know the URLs are about to change.

Shame on you, Wired.
