360 Pub news:President Barack Obama Will Edit Tech Magazine WIRED’s November Issue

In the Roosevelt Room of the White House, President Barack Obama discusses plans for the issue he is guest editing with WIRED's Editor in Chief Scott Dadich and Editorial Director Robert Capps.
President Barack Obama is trying his hand at magazine editing, and he’s starting with Condé Nast’s technology-inspired title WIRED. Working in magazines appears to be a new hobby for the President, who penned an essay for WIRED’s sister publication Glamour on feminism in its September issue.
Wired has officially made it public that president will guest-edit the November issue working with the theme of “frontiers.” They said;

WIRED HAS HAD some amazing guest editors over the years. J.J. Abrams on magic, mysteries, and puzzles; Bill Gates on solving the world’s biggest problems; Christopher Nolan on space, time, and multiple dimensions; and, most recently, Serena Williams on equality in the digital age. This November we will add President Barack Obama to our guest editor ranks—the first time WIRED (or any other magazine) has been guest-edited by a sitting president.

The theme of the issue: Frontiers. Like WIRED, our 44th president is a relentless optimist. For this completely bespoke issue, he wants to focus on the future—on the next hurdles that humanity will need to overcome to move forward. These will include personal frontiers, from precision medicine to human performance; local frontiers, including using data in urban planning and making sure renewable energy works for everyone; national frontiers, from civil rights to medical data; international frontiers, like climate change and cybersecurity; and final frontiers, including space travel and Artificial Intelligence.

Why the president? Why now?

“When the Founders wrote the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, they were at the bleeding edge of Enlightenment philosophy and technology,” WIRED Editor In Chief Scott Dadich explains. “Franklin was talking about crazy stuff like electricity and communications networks. Paine gave up the copyright to Common Sense so it could get wider publication. Jefferson was radically rethinking design and land use. We want to wrestle with the idea of how today’s technology can influence political leadership. And who better to help us explore these ideas than President Obama?”

The White House is also announcing a Frontiers conference, inspired by the issue, which President Obama will host with the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University on October 13. You can learn more about the event at frontiersconference.org.

The issue will be available on select newsstands, WIRED.com, and tablet editions beginning October 18, and will hit newsstands nationwide on October 25.
