Well, it’s that time of the month again. The couple of days when my new issues of Wired, Business 2.0, and Fast Company all arrive to provide me with fresh reading material for a few weeks. Today my July Wired magazine showed up, with this cover greeting me:
Several issues ago, Wired offered personalized magazine covers to the first 5,000 subscribers who uploaded their photos to a special website. It’s a special promotion they’re doing with Xerox to showcase the company’s FreeFlow Digital Workflow collection of applications and services, and ties into an article about the future of hyperlocal content. In case you’re wondering, that’s my Creative Commons t-shirt I’m wearing in that photo — a good fit for the cover of Wired.
This month’s issue also has a big story about the new Transformers movie coming out next week. I have fond memories of watching the cartoon when I was little, and even have my toys somewhere down in my office closet (I never did get Optimus Prime though). I, along with ever other guy my age, hope it lives up to the hype.
