The Wired mission is to tell the world something they’ve never heard before in a way they’ve never seen before. It’s about turning new ideas into everyday reality. It’s about seeding our community of influencers with the ideas that will shape and transform our collective future. Wired readers want to know how technology is changing the world, and they’re interested in big, relevant ideas, even if those ideas challenge their assumptions - or blow their minds.
