Inside the “Frontiers” themed issue, Obama explained how he came to be the first sitting U.S. president guest-edited a major magazine.
“When Wired asked me to guest-edit the November issue, I didn’t hesitate,” wrote Obama. “I know it’s the height of election season, and I happen to have a day job that keeps me pretty busy. But given the chance to immerse myself in the possibility of interplanetary travel or join a deep-dive conversation on artificial intelligence, I’m going to say yes. I love this stuff. Always have.”
The November issue of Wired is available on newsstands Oct. 25.
