Chris Anderson, Editor-in-Chief at Wired, talked to Columbia journalism students yesterday about his publication and the future of the Internet. He said Wired would be getting subscriptions for its iPad edition, but couldn’t say when or how it would work.
He also mentioned that the covers of Wired sometimes don’t tell the real story, and are merely meant to grab the attention of consumers. “We put things on the covers that sell, and sometimes its relationship to the interior is not 100 percent.” Not shocking news, of course.
The best part of the talk might have been when he boasted about parent Condé Nast, saying, “We had our best year in history last year.”
Hmmm… Something about that comment doesn’t seem 100 percent accurate.
