Wired - The Wired mission is to tell the world something they've never heard
before in a way they've never seen before. It's about turning new ideas into everyday reality. It's about seeding
our community of influencers with the ideas that will shape and transform our collective future. Wired readers want
to know how technology is changing the world, and they're interested in big, relevant ideas, even if those ideas challenge
their assumptions—or blow their minds. Wired readers are generally familiar with computers and the Internet,
but this is definitely not a computer magazine—Wired won't teach you how to upgrade your RAM. Instead,
it's a magazine about science, art, adventure, online culture, business, philosophy...and bright shiny beautiful gadgets.

The Millionaire Next Door - So you are not Anne Hathaway, Derek
Jeter, Posh Spice, LeBron James, or Bill Gates, but you still hope to be financially successful.

hard, and maybe drive a Chevy instead of a BMW.

hottest business, media, and technology success of our time." A quick and interesting read about a major step in the
development and use of the Internet.
