WIRED is the first word on how technology is changing the world. WIRED's focus is less on the technology itself, and more on the impact of technology: on business, science, and culture. WIRED sees change as opportunity. We embrace the future and help foster innovation, invention, and disruption. WIRED is the guide for what's next. The WIRED mission is to tell the world something they have never heard before in a way they have never seen.
