President Obama guest-edited an issue of the tech magazine 'Wired'


Barack Obama can add another bullet point to his resume.

If you had to choose any time in the course of human history to be alive, you'd choose this one. Right here in America, right now.
President Obama

He was a guest editor in the November issue of Wired, a popular technology magazine. 

Obama wrote an essay for the magazine touting the power of technology to solve global problems.

Obama's interest in the tech world has grown in recent months.


He hosted "South by South Lawn," a miniature version of the South by Southwest tech and music festival in Austin, Texas, on the White House lawn.  And he said on Tuesday that America would send humans to Mars by the 2030s.

This marks the eighth guest editor in Wired  history, including film director Christopher Nolan, tennis star Serena Williams and Microsoft founder Bill Gates.

So far, his work seems to be well-received.

Hopefully, he brings that slogan to an upcoming speech.
