First 20 years of Wired covers

Here are the first 20 years of Wired covers in less than 30 seconds. I met Mark in 1993 around Wired's birth when we both worked at the magazine. I was Mark's intern! My first day on the job, Mark brought me downstairs to meet his wife Carla Sinclair who was editor of bOING bOING the print 'zine that I had been reading since 1990. Mark and Carla assigned me an article on the spot, handed me a half-empty bottle of Vasopressin, and we quickly became best pals. Ah, the good ol' daze.


    1. Nasal spray. We were experimenting with “smart drugs” and Vasopressin reportedly improves mental clarity and memory. I can’t recall if it worked though. ; )

      1. Works.  Cerebral vasodilator if you don’t mind the fluid retention.  Will immediately stop a marijuana buzz.

  1.  I have a collection of the first four or five years of WIRED up for grabs. Also, the press kit.

    I live near Portland. Free to anyone who wants to drive out to Hillsboro.

    I’m keeping a couple of copies of issue #1.

  2. Personally I thought their 20th anniversary was the most underwhelming of them all.  Always look forward to what the cover’s going to be and this is the first time I opened the mailbox and thought “seriously?”

    1. Not to mention the fact that that issue has basically no content in it except for short summaries of stuff that we all already know about. Some nice portrait photography, though.
