  1. The Battle for the Soul of Buy Nothing | WIRED

    A good read, mostly interesting for how hard it is to get groups to move from Facebook.

  2. God Did the World a Favor by Destroying Twitter | WIRED

    Paul Ford on Twitter and Mastodon. “The Fediverse apps are all built on a set of rules called the ActivityPub standard, which is a little like HTML had sex with a calendar invite. It’s a content polycule.”

  3. A WIRED compendium - by Dave Karpf

    “a list of WIRED articles that best captured the vibe of the magazine through time,” US, 1993–2017. Good but, inexplicably, no ‘Mother Earth Mother Board’.

  4. Exit, by Hari Kunzru

    On the early Wired UK, and the desire of libertarians to escape political, social and financial constraints.

  5. Ask me, I know

    Archive of AskAllison from HotWired in 1995. Oh the backgrounds.

  6. LadBaby and the wild rise of the Facebook Famous | WIRED UK

    Mainly interesting for the differences between famous creators and the types of content on different platforms. (also via Web Curios)

  7. How London’s Silicon Roundabout dream turned into a nightmare | WIRED UK

    One of the suggested tags for this article as I add it to Pinboard is “corruption”.

  8. WIRED Union

    Excellent, Wired employees are unionising. US only, I assume? (via Pluralistic)

  9. The story of London’s tech scene, as told by those who built it | WIRED UK

    Or, a spotty history of some mostly venture-funded big digital businesses from only the past decade.

  10. Louis Rossetto on Vimeo

    Louis has uploaded a bunch of old Wired videos. (via @guydeboredom)

  11. Louis Rossetto -

    Interview. For the bits about starting Wired. And Om Malil: “Discovering Wired was like finding my Rolling Stone. With Wired, I found my cultural context more than anything else.” Yup.

  12. The Untold Story of Magic Leap, the World’s Most Secretive Startup | WIRED

    Kevin Kelly’s overview of Mixed and Virtual Reality systems is a good read if you haven’t been paying enough attention, like me.

  13. Wired Style: A Linguist Explains Vintage Internet Slang - The Toast

    On the 1990s Wired style guide. ‘It’s like a “no dress code” workplace where everyone miraculously shows up in the same plaid button-down: informal, but tightly conscribed.’ (via Russell Davies)

  14. Suck: Daily - 26 November 1996

    On the closing of HotWired and the birth of Wired News. Lots of good phrases. “…who might have guessed that Death of the Net, Film at 11, only meant we were waiting for live video?”

  15. What’s musician, entrepreneur and philanthropist been up to recently? - Popjustice

    A fun look at the “co-curator” of the latest edition of ‘Wired’ (which to be fair, has often had less-than technologically-savvy cover stars). “This man is a lunatic.” (via @beekernortham)

  16. How the Banner Ad Was Born | Digiday

    On the first banner ad, created at HotWired in 1994. (via Daring Fireball)

  17. YouTube - The Netizen

    Finally able to transfer my previously Google Video-hosted copy of the 1996/7 Wired TV pilot programme to YouTube. Whatever happened to cyber-rights?

  18. The Participant Observer » Blog Archive » Cyborganic and the Birth of Networked Social Media (It’s here!)

    PhD thesis from a couple of years ago, on Cyborganic and other things (like Wired/Hotwired) that its members were involved in.

  19. intitle:”anna chapman” inurl:beyond_the_beyond - Google Search

    I’m very much enjoying Bruce Sterling’s coverage of Russian spy Anna Chapman. (And, mmm, Google search filters are handy.)

  20. The Wired Tablet App: A Video Demonstration | Epicenter |

    Wired magazine’s demo of their tablet version. We’re going to end up with a different UI for every single magazine/publisher aren’t we…? Oh dear. Also: “At the bottom we have … the scrubber.” Ha ha!

  21. Wired Scenarios: - Global Neighborhood Watch Neal Stephenson

    For blech, Neal Stephenson in 1995, imagining people watching CCTV cameras over the internet, like the new ‘Internet Eyes’ scheme starting in Britain.

    A (low quality) video history of HotWired, HotBot, etc. up to 1998 or so.

  23. Welcome, ‘Wired’. We call this land “Internet” | Boing Boing Gadgets

    Interesting thread on Wired mag vs, the relative importance and worth of each, their writers, conflicts of differing deadlines, content length, etc. No easy answers.

  24. The Netizen

    I’ve been digitising VHS tapes. I found this 1996/7 TV show from the then soon to be defunct Wired TV. It’s quite dull.

  25. - free image hosting - Wired UK

    One person’s guess as to how the forthcoming UK version of Wired will turn out. Not quite Thomas Paine. (via Haddock)

  26. Condé Nast to launch Wired magazine in the UK | Media |

    I hate that a bit of me is torn between bitterness and excitement about this. I want not to care. (via Haddock)

  27. Webmonkey: the Web Developers Resource

    Some say nostalgia is a disease but it’s still nice to see Webmonkey return. I first learned PHP and MySQL here. It has a lot to answer for.

    Apparently planning a UK edition of ‘Wired’. Hahahahaha Boohoohoohoo. (via Haddock)

    Dawkins, Dennett, Sam Harris. (via The Same River Twice)

    Ten years ago. It feels like both yesterday and another life.

  31. Hotwired Search

    The saddest thing I’ve seen this week (even though I first saw it a few weeks ago but completely forgot about it because I must be going senile).

  32. Wired News: The Future Needs Futurists

    On the need for professionalising futurism. (via Annie)

  33. Internet Archive Wayback Machine - Robots.txt Query Exclusion.

    HotWired launched ten years ago yesterday but you can’t see older versions on because HotWired have blocked it from archiving their site.
