Barack Obama accepts job as editor of Wired Magazine

NY times story

Wired Magazine, the nerdy high tech magazine, has turned over its publication to President Obama in November to edit the magazine, since he has experience editing the Harvard Law Review.

Wired Magazine is owned by Condé Nast in New York City, which publishes other successful influential magazines like GQ, Brides, Allure, the New Yorker, Vogue, Self and Vanity Fair.

    Are you sure this article wasn’t from the Onion?

      If the NY times was fooled, so were a lot of others. I really can’t imagine what the motive is beyond I think Wired has been fading as an influential publication. Condé Nast also owns Reddit, which they fabulously destroyed by telling the boys to play nice with the girls, and ARS Technica, which is very geeky, even for me. I figure it in reality will be a lot of ghost writing/editing. There were rumors way back when that Obama didn’t actually do any editing of the Harvard Law Review, just lent his skin color to Harvard for publicity.
