Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

There is a lot of info out there about StackOverflow's internal architecture, its stack, server configuration, hardware, programming tools, IDE and what not, etc.

I am very curious about the UI & Graphic Design. Who designed it, how, what alternative designs where checked, etc. What other colors where checked, etc.

I mean the general site design and not the logo.

Podcast #16 describes the early design of the site. The initial layout and design was largely done by Jeremy Kratz. This blog entry is a peek of the first "real" design.
