Subject: magazine recommendation

I recently discovered a new magazine which I would like to recommend to
HUMANIST subscribers and other interested parties. I do not work for
this publication, am not receiving compensation for this, nor will I
receive payments of any kind from the publishers. The magazine is
entitled _WIRED_, and I bought it off the news stand. I believe the
first hard copy edition was Nov. 1993. The current issue contains
much fascinating material on the intersection of media, knowledge,
experience and culture, precipitated by computers and computer-
related knowledge. The magazine is also visually impressive, written
in a lively fashion, and admittedly contains alot of material about
computer games, virtual reality and other subjects not of immediate
interest to me. However, it serves for me as a fascinating window
into how we gain knowledge and organize experience under the influence
of computers, INTERNET etc. Further, many of the regular writers
and editors place their e-mail address at the end of articles to
invite reader feedback and comments. If anyone else has had a
different reaction to the magazine, I would enjoy hearing from you.
