Next spring brings the launch of WIRED UK, a new stab at providing a "local" WIRED Magazine for God’s own country. This attempt involves the services of Ben Hammersley, whose CV is twice as long as mine or yours and eighteen times as mad.

This will be massive amounts of fun.

  10. They should have called it Node in honor of Spook Country.

  11. what is Ben going to be doing on the magazine other than spewing greatness?
