creating wired

THE CASUAL TITAN OF TECHFor our celebration of the UK’s tech scene, we asked photographer Benedict Evans to capture the key figures who have shaped the British ecosystem as entrepreneurs, investors and visionaries: “To meet and photograph all these astonishingly accomplished people with such a profound influence on every part of life that technology touches was a dream assignment,” says Evans. “The image here of Rohan Silva [former senior adviser to David Cameron, and champion of Tech City] is an out-take from after we finished the sitting. He’d just put on his hoodie – a look I thought was both beautifully low-key and yet, fittingly, also part of the iconography of tech.”REBOOTING BRITAIN (WITH PAPER)Photographers Ilka & Franz, with paper artist Lydia Kasumi Shirreff, created the eye-popping images for our…

looking back at the future, as it happened

Well, that went quickly.When WIRED first hit newsstands in April 2009, it did so against a strong headwind: Britain was experiencing political turmoil resulting from the credit crunch, there was significant upheaval in the Middle East, and the EU was about to deliver a $1.4bn fine to one of the world’s largest technology companies, Intel. Sound familiar? That first edition, and its positive and spirited view of the future, was a contrast to the despair that characterised the UK’s internal politics and the geopolitical outlook.Today, WIRED remains resolutely optimistic. Our mission – to cover the people, trends and ideas in technology, science, business, politics and design changing the world – remains unaltered. And to celebrate ten years of offering guidance in a shifting landscape, we have two special features that…

bringing alan turing back to life

Ian McEwan has no interest in science fiction.That’s why, when the Atonement author decided to write a novel about a messy love triangle between two humans and an artificially-intelligent android, he opted to reimagine the past instead of predicting the future. How do you rationalise an 80s London where synthetic humans accompany their flesh-and-blood owners to the corner shop? By bringing Alan Turing back to life.“You only have to look back one or two steps to see how all the present could easily have been something else,” McEwan says. In Machines Like Me, he imagines that the mathematician and codebreaker didn’t die by suicide at age 41, but lived on to crack P versus NP, a major computer science problem that in reality remains unsolved.In the world of the novel,…
