The incomparable Rex at Fimoculous goes all archaeological on the debut issue of Wired, which hit the newsstands 15 years ago this month. This is interesting to me — and not because I have early 90s proto-tech nostalgia or anything. In point of fact, I was on the cusp of turning 13 when Wired 1.1 came out and wouldn’t develop even a casual interest in tech-related writings for a very long time to come.
But still, the state of the art in the Wired milieu circa 1993 is fascinating: As Rex points out, no URLs in the debut issue, Nintendo is compared unfavorably to 3D0, and a bunch of other tidbits that look whacky in retrospect. Also, be sure to check out that Apple ad!
