President Obama is about to be unemployed, so it makes sense that he’s trying out different things. His latest exploration? Magazine editor. Obama will serve as the guest-editor of Wired’s November issue.

The issue will feature stories hand-picked by Obama, each focused on the theme of “frontiers.” Content will broken down into five sections:

  • Personal frontiers
  • Local frontiers
  • National frontiers
  • International frontiers
  • Final frontiers

This is the first time that Obama has guest-edited a magazine and the eighth guest-editor for Wired. Previous Wired guest editors include Serena Williams, Christopher Nolan and Bill Gates.
