I've subscribed to Wired Magazine for several years, though I confess that that I don't read every issue from cover to cover. This is a magazine best suited to Silicon Valley technophiles. There are a lot of ads for the latest gadgets, and the short articles about these new technologies appeal to more avid gadget collectors than me.
So why have I not cancelled my subscription? I keep reading Wired because of the feature articles. They are well researched, thoughtful, and clever; they often cover an aspect of the business or culture of technology that other magazines miss. I can still remember some of the best articles -- an article about why FedEx is really a high tech company, an article about how fiber optic cable is laid and what that means for the economics of broadband, an article about how the European Commission's Competition Bureau is shaping the global technology business through its regulatory authority.
If you are a technophile, you s!hould subscribe if you don't already. But even if you're not, you should consider it if you work in the tech sector or have an interest in how technology affects all of our lives.
