Magazine Cover of the Week: Wired with Edward Snowden

originalIt’s Friday, almost the weekend, and therefore, time to gather up your reading list…everything you saw but didn’t have time to actually read.

This week, we suggest the latest issue of Wired magazine. Its cover sure to grab attention, shows Edward Snowden holding an American flag with the accompanying cover story “Edward Snowden: The Untold Story.”

In the opening, editor Scott Dadich writes, ”The message arrives on my ‘clean machine,’ a MacBook Air loaded only with a sophisticated encryption package. ‘Change in plans,’ my contact says. ‘Be in the lobby of the Hotel ______ by 1 pm. Bring a book and wait for ES to find you’.”

An interview nine months in the making that lasted three days over several weeks, Dadich continues, “But when Snowden finally agrees to discuss his personal life, the portrait that emerges is not one of a wild-eyed firebrand but of a solemn, sincere idealist who—step by step over a period of years—grew disillusioned with his country and government.”
