Shark Swimmin'

Lynn, our User Experience Queen here at Zappos, is a thrill seeker by nature. She has more energy than our entire blog team put together, I also wanted to point out.

So, Lynn, in her infinite madness, has decided that, for her upcoming vacation, she would kick back, relax, and swim with sharks in the waters near Guadalupe Island. It’s one of the worlds capitials for Great White Shark populations…..you know….the kind of shark that Roy Scheider, Richard Dreyfuss and the scary boat captain dude were trying to catch. Ahhh….the calm soothing grooves of possible death.

And, since, today is her last day before heading off to ‘relax’, our design and UX teams decided to comfort her nerves with a homemade shark cage (made with great care by John F. and Sara M.).

Just about everyone in two buildings were in on this, and Lynn seemed to be completely surprised.

Have fun, Lynn. Da-Da.

How fun!! I've swam with sharks before, but never great whites. I'm sure it'll be an experience to remember! Oh yeah, and keep in mind -- they're more scared of you than you are of them. ;)
