How Wired magazine rebooted its print and digital business models

Updated:

By: Jamshid Ghazi Askar, Deseret News

Starting with the June issue that landed on newsstands Tuesday, Wired magazine is sporting a new look in its printed product. But that's not all that's new about Wired.

“There was something about the previous version of Wired - the bright colors, bold fonts, perhaps the splashy photos and graphics - that made it feel distinctly like a magazine about science and technology for men,” Lauren Indvik wrote earlier this week for the tech news website Mashable. “Not so with the new edition of Wired. … With its modern, almost muted aesthetic, it feels more like a lifestyle magazine - and a rather sophisticated, thoughtful one at that. …

“Stop by the masthead, and you'll notice the editorial side is no longer divided into Wired and Wired.com staffers: It's all one operation now, and the floor plan of the San Francisco office has been rearranged to reflect it, so I'm told: The guys who write about gadgets for the magazine are now sitting next to the guys who write about gadgets for the website, and so on.”

Last week USA Today reported other new developments for Wired: “The techno-trend periodical, launched 20 years ago, has three new series that go live today on Wired's video channel and on YouTube.”

    When 826 NYC, a nonprofit organization that fosters creative writing skills, asked children ages 9-12 to dream up the ultimate lemonade stand, the responses were huge. The winning project of  The Great Lemonation Imagination Collaboration was turned into a real lemonade stand complete with free lemonade in Manhattan's Flatiron District. The organization's members were also required to help run the stand that went up at Broadway and 23rd Street on Wednesday.

    Times Square characters: we don't work for free

    Times Square characters want to be taken seriously and want their tips. The mostly immigrant workers are now called the Association of Artists United for a Smile and are fighting to protect their jobs, in light of a recent crackdown. Jorge Duran says he stands around for hours, sweating inside a costume, and says it is annoying and unfair if he poses for a good picture and gets nothing.
