Wired is a full-color monthly American magazine and on-line periodical published since March 1993[1]. Owned by Condé Nast Publications, it reports on how "cyber" and internet technologies affect culture, the economy, and politics. It was "the ultimate geek magazine" and technotopian.

Wired's editorial stance was originally inspired by the ideas of Canadian media theorist Marshall McLuhan, credited as the magazine's "patron saint" in early colophons. Wired has both been admired and disliked for its strong libertarian principles, its enthusiastic embrace of techno-utopianism, and its sometimes experimental layout with its bold use of fluorescent and metallic inks.
