Wired is a full-color monthly American magazine, published in both print and online editions, that reports on how emerging technologies affect culture, the economy and politics. Owned by Condé Nast, it is headquartered in San Francisco, California and has been in publication since its first issue in March/April 1993. Several spin-offs have been launched including: Wired UK, Wired Italia, Wired Japan and Wired Germany.

In its earliest colophons, Wired credited Canadian media theorist Marshall McLuhan as its “patron saint.” From the beginning, the strongest immediate influence on the magazine’s editorial outlook came from the techno-utopian agenda of co-founder Stewart Brand and his long-time associate Kevin Kelly.
