Behind the magazine mailed from the future

Kevin Kelly on how the iconic tech magazine Wired was conceptualised:

“We thought of it as a magazine that appeared as if it had been mailed from the future…. We created a magazine we wanted to read.”

Co-founder and former publisher Louis Rossetto

“We weren’t prisoners of objectivity. Our mission was to deliver reality…. We did get right that the internet would provide an alternative connection to reality that had previously been the monopoly of the media. The Russian revolution is a school yard game compared to the change that’s been driven by the digital revolution.”
