Looks like it's actually both in a way. 5$ for "print subscription" + ad-free on their website.

Thanks for sharing that man

Wired was cool back when they had decent writers like Bruce Sterling and (occasionally) Neil Stephenson

The last couple times I checked out Wired it was like one long Apple commercial.

Wired was cool before they published the Manning-Lamo logs and got Chelsea Manning sent to federal prison.

It had been a couple of decades since I had subscribed to a paper magazine but then I took some kind of survey with a reward of multiple magazines for like $2/year each. For a long time I haven't thought that I would have the time or inclination to sit down with paper reading materials and I was right. I now have a stack of Wired, Nat. Geo, Fortune, and others that I have never and probably won't read before I recycle them. If I can read anything I want in an instant on my phone, why ever worry about paper magazines (or newspapers, they're the worst) again?

Ah, the mid-90s. I used to make a special trip to Hastings once a month to pick up the latest issues of Wired and Internet Underground, and check to see if a new 2600 had come out. That was a special time. I felt like an extra in Hackers, going out of my way to pick up a print magazine about the goddamn internet. How else were you going to find all the latest k-r4d URLs, d00d? Altavista? I don't THINK so, cowboy.

I wonder if my old trenchcoat still fits.

I think I prefer paper-medium reading material because I do a lot reading on the toilet haha Also when my eyes are bothering me I don't want to even look at a glowing screen to read something.

Hmm you know come to think of it the last computer magazines I ever bought in print were PC Gaming World and one of those large computer magazines filled with ads and hardware order forms. I never read much 2600 magazine but remember reading and enjoying every PHRACK when they were released on the internet.
