I like: Wired magazine (US edition), originally uploaded by renaissancechambara.

I love Wired magazine, It’s a combination of long and short-form editorial which appeals to the polymath within. There is an optimism about progress whilst recognising the law of unintended consequences. Opinions that challenge the reader even if you don’t agree with them.

And the visual experience: metallic and neon inks, rich infographics and design that electronic media just doesn’t match.

It has become a Whole Earth Catalog for the information age.

It is also interesting to note how divorced Silicon Valley has become from the transformational innovation inside the covers of Wired magazine.. It’s luminaries grace the pages a lot less than they used to, not sure if this is down to editorial policy or declining innovation in the Bay Area?
