Obama to Guest-Edit Wired Magazine

At Mr. Obama’s direction, the issue will focus on the future, the magazine said. Its theme will be frontiers: personal, local, national, international and beyond. (Think precision medicine, urban planning, civil rights, climate change and space travel.) The president is no stranger to science, technology and Silicon Valley, subjects central to Wired’s coverage.That theme will also serve as the subject of a White House conference, a convening of innovators, to be held in Pittsburgh earlier in October and to be co-hosted by the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University.
