Ah, yet another content provider selling-out to try to be “cool”. I recently wrote about what happened to the Discovery Channel and their now complete decline into trash TV, and now Wired Magazine is heading in a similar direction.
I want to preface this rant by saying that I am (was) a huge fan of Wired. As recently as 6 months ago I have said that Wired Magazine is the best magazine out there. It had a balance of tech, science and culture curated for an intellectual reader.
Unfortunately, things have changed and the magazine has begun to nosedive. Wired seems to be focused almost entirely on Silicon Valley douchebag hipsters now, and it is really depressing.
