Barack Obama to guest edit Wired Magazine

According to the publishers it will be the first time ever that an American president has guest edited a magazine.


Former Wired guest-editors include Bill Gates, Serena Williams, JJ Abrams and Christopher Nolan. The theme Obama has settled on is ‘fronties’ which will feature for the monthly titles November issue.

Editor-in-Chief, Scott Dadich, comments: “When the Founder wrote the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, they were at the bleeding edge of Enlightenment philosophy and technology. Franklin was talking about crazy stuff like electricity and communications networks. Paine gave up the copyright to Common Sense so it could get wide publication. Jefferson was radically rethinking design and land use. We want to wrestle with the idea of how today’s technology can influence political leadership. And who better to help us explore these ideas than president Obama?”

According to the latest ABC figures (JJ16), Wired has an average monthly print circulation in the UK of 54,094 copies.
