WIRED March 2017

The Wired mission is to tell the world something they've never heard before in a way they've never seen before. It's about turning new ideas into everyday reality. It's about seeding our community of influencers with the ideas that will shape and transform our collective future. Wired readers want to know how technology is changing the world, and they're interested in big, relevant ideas, even if those ideas challenge their assumptions—or blow their minds.

made in macedonia

THE EVE OF A SNOWSTORM was the perfect moment for photographer Guy Martin to capture the bleak mood in Veles, Macedonia, a city where the loss of industrial jobs has pushed idle teens into the fake-news business (page 68). As locals headed indoors to escape subzero temperatures, Martin set out on foot to photograph the frozen streets. “Everything had just gone from the place,” he says. The Istanbul-based shooter is no stranger to exploring what he calls “the gray areas in the world,” having covered Arab Spring protests, civil war in Libya, and the Syrian refugee crisis for the likes of Time and National Geographic. In Veles, Martin found warmth one night in a garden shed with a group of local men, drinking homemade brandy and singing old Balkan tunes.…

the handoff

MY FIRST COLUMN as editor in chief of WIRED ran in issue 21.03, exactly four years ago. I didn’t train as a writer, but I’ve found real creative pleasure in these issue notes—though the actual words never come as easily as I (or my editor) wish they might. This is the hardest one yet, because it’s my last. ¶ WIRED is a place designed to find the future, and my final issue is all about the future of what we do here every day: the news. We set out, as always, to avoid navel-gazing clichés and instead to understand what’s actually going to change in light of 2017’s new challenges and dangers. You’re going to read important thinking—Gabriel Snyder on the technology that drives The New York Times, Samanth Subramanian…

brave new worlds

After predicting the future for the past 25 years, we were ready to spend some time there. The result is our first-ever sci-fi issue, which features, to our great delight, many of our favorite authors: Hugo Award winner N. K. Jemisin, Westworld writer Charles Yu, and James S. A. Corey, of the Expanse novels, to name a few. Some of their visions of tomorrow—mind-reading devices, solicitous aliens, clones, and perpetual war—are bound to come true. Let’s just hope it’s the less-apocalyptic ones. Re: The Sci-Fi Issue “THIS ISSUE IS ART! LOVE WHAT YOU ALL ARE DOING. THANKS.” Jeremy Grant via email Re: The Sci-Fi Issue “I’d like to thank all the authors and WIRED staff for a truly delightful issue. As a sci-fi fan, I loved it. And it’s good to remember how many of…

q&a the god complex how big data will fuel a new religion

HUMANITY HAS HAD astonishing success alleviating famine, disease, and war. (It might not always seem that way, but it’s true.) Now, Homo sapiens is on the brink of an upgrade—sort of. As we become increasingly skilled at deploying artificial intelligence, big data, and algorithms to do everything from easing traffic to diagnosing cancer, we’ll transform into a new breed of superhuman, says historian and best-selling author Yuval Harari in his new book, Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow. Which is great, except that we might also become so dependent on these tools that our species will become irrelevant—our value determined only by the data we generate. WIRED spoke to Harari about this coming life in the matrix just before he left for his annual 45-day tech-free meditation retreat. WIRED: In…

now (re)playing

Live-Action Adaptations: It’s Hard to Hit the Sweet Spot Slavish Imitation Beauty and the Beast The Emma Watson vehicle is a way-too-faithful remake. Once upon a time was enough. Smart Interpretation Wilson Woody Harrelson manages to make Daniel Clowes’ middleaged misanthrope kinda … likable? Gross Appropriation Ghost in the Shell We love Ghost in the Shell. We love ScarJo kicking ass. But the whitewashing? Not so much. Wolverine’s Final Cut After this month’s postapocalyptic Wolverine flick, Logan, Hugh Jackman will finally hang up his adamantium claws. That might be a good thing for pacifists, because what he does best isn’t very nice, bub. Here’s a look at how minutes onscreen translates to body count over Jackman’s 17 years as the muttonchopped mutant. The 800-ish- Pound Gorilla In Kong: Skull Island, the ape gets another makeover—he’s four times taller than last time. Tara Stoinski,…

tiger balm ultra feel the distraction

Camphor One of the muscle balm’s two active ingredients (meaning the FDA recognizes its medicinal properties), camphor reduces pain through distraction by activating your skin’s temperature sensors and tricking you into feeling cold. There’s only so much input the nervous system can handle in one location, so forcing the body to focus on the chills has the effect of masking the underlying pain. Menthol The other active player, menthol, is an alcohol extracted from mint oil. Like camphor, it triggers your cold receptors, which might be why it reduces blood flow and swelling— just like an ice pack. Because it also seems to interact with opioid receptors, menthol may have painkilling effects beyond its powers of distraction and inflammation reduction. Dementholized Mint Oil Though it’s the byproduct of the menthol extraction process, this stuff still…
