The first #wired magazine I bought was in August 1994… The #myst issue, volume 2 issue 8. I remember reading it on a hot day, on a towel in the backyard of our first house. I had just bought the game MYST, so this issue caught my eye. Before that I thought WIRED was some kind of druggie magazine so I ignored it. Besides, I was already paying $20/issue for bi-monthly #MacFormat magazines, which came with a #CDROM so I wasn’t buying much else. I still get them in the mail, but 240 issues later, I’m wondering what to do with them? Who would want them, or are they just trash? Looking back at them, they are a fascinating account of changes to our world and #technology in the last twenty years. Current in this issue is the Sony “Playstation”, Yamaha’s synth that can create realistic sounding woodwind instruments, the Newton, all grown up and ready for school, a polycom teleconferencing phone now present in every boardroom, and a BA-lazingly fast Pentium PC souped up to 66 MHz. I also have every issue of American Photographer/American Photo since they started in 1978 until they went digital, if anybody’s interested!
