Editor Of Wired Magazine Steps Down To Pursue Robotics Venture
The editor-in-chief of Wired magazine is leaving his post.
Over eleven years, Chris Anderson transformed a geek publication into a mainstream powerhouse, reporting on how technology is redefining our lives.
Anderson will now focus on 3D Robotics - his San Francisco start-up that makes do-it-yourself drones.
Steve Silberman, a Wired contributing editor, says the move makes perfect sense. "Anybody who knows Chris knows that his heart has been in that drone business for a really long time."
Silberman says the departure is also an opportunity.
"The office culture is quite male-oriented. I've heard it referred to as a boys club. So I think that would be wonderful if there was a strong woman there as well, to add her voice and also to bring in some more senior female editors."
Parent company Conde Nast has not announced a replacement.
