How a Wired magazine story became Ben Affleck's "Argo"

Nicholas Thompson in The New Yorker: "The climax of the movie Argo takes place at the airport in Tehran. Six Americans, having hidden in Iran for three months, are taking this one chance to get out of a country that’s embroiled in revolution and anger. Their cover is that they’re part of a science-fiction film crew; their guide is Tony Mendez, a C.I.A. operative. I edited the Wired magazine story—written by Joshuah Bearman—that would eventually be turned into the movie."
