  • Welcome to WIRED. Let the interview begin.

  • Thank you.

  • I have been excited to talk with you as WIRED Japan.

  • You took part in the WIRED US talk with President Obama and our US Chief Editor.

  • That article made quite an impact.

  • WIRED was founded in 1993.

  • The publication was influenced by west coast culture at the time.

  • The magazine had taken a libertarian stance toward the establishment.

  • Twenty-five years later,

  • the cover is Barack Obama.

  • This represents a kind of technological and societal transformation.

  • How do you see this evolution over the 25 years at WIRED, Joi?

  • I've known about WIRED since it was no more than a proposal.

  • I never actually wrote anything, but was called a contributing editor.

  • Well, WIRED started in the Internet boom.

  • Former Vice President Al Gore is said to have had a copy in his office.

  • We were proud of that at WIRED.

  • So, people in the know seemed to respond shrewdly to this trend.

  • The east coast was even reading Wired.

  • MONDO2000 was an even more counter- culture magazine published before Wired.

  • I was involved with both when they were first published.

  • WIRED was different than MONDO2000.

  • Wired was focused on business and a high-quality design.

  • It moved away from hippie counterculture.

  • The content took a more tech-culture perspective.

  • I think this is one reason why WIRED has never really changed its design.

  • The design-centered focus is the same.

  • However, it has moved away from optimistic stories.

  • There was a cutting-edge feel.

  • Nicholas Thompson returned to WIRED as Editor-in-Chief from The New Yorker.

  • The New Yorker has some positives stories,

  • but it is critical of things like social issues.

  • These nuances are incorporated into WIRED.

  • This style brought in during Facebook's privacy issues.

  • So, we are seeing this critical view of issues in WIRED.

  • It's The New Yorker style.

  • I know WIRED will publish more high-quality, long-form articles.

  • It's vital.

  • MIT Media Lab publishes a series on WIRED Founder Nicholas Negroponte.

  • The Media Lab also started with optimistic content.

  • After thirty years, we are taking more responsibility.

  • - We have a duty to cover social issues. - So you have committed to.

  • How do you see the new economy today?

  • There is an overabundance of platforms like Facebook and cryptocurrencies.

  • Zuckerberg is not trying to be a villain.
