A few days ago, I was recommending this month’s issue of WIRED to an old co-worker. This month’s cover story is “The New Diamond Age” (in a past life, I use to grow diamond – in about 45 minutes). The past cub-mate said, “Isn’t WIRED a computer magazine?”
I would say it is a technology magazine. Some of the articles that caught my eye this month were the world power grid (very timely considering the rather large problems of today), the see-through sea-kayak, and crime prediction a la Minority Report. And I am only halfway through.
Technology fueled by ideas. It is those ideas I like being exposed to. They are ideas that I don’t run across through other items I read. To me, that is a sign that I have found the right source.
It’s $12 for a year’s subscription. You can drop that on lunch.
