Purging external links from text[edit]

Lexor, "wikification" that removes external links from within the text strikes me as profoundly anti-Web, even if it is apparently Wikipedia practice. The power of the Web is its ability to easily and seemlessly connect the user to knowledge. Systematically replacing external links with internal links to a Wikipedia page that doesn't exist and then moving the link to the bottom of the page reserved for References (when they aren't "references" but the actual thing itself) does not seem to me to be an improvement. That this is being done to an entry about a Web pioneer is even more ironic. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 0Z (talkcontribs) 22:00, 13 October 2004 (UTC)

Weird - no mention of Wired Science TV show?[edit]

I'm no expert on this topic, but it did exist and should be mentioned. W@ntonsoup (talk) 17:06, 12 March 2010 (UTC)

Early issue numbering[edit]

Back in 1993 issues of Wired were named like issue 1.1, not as 1.01 as presently known as on the Wired website. For proof I scanned in the first content page of issue 1.4. SpeakFree (talk) 15:12, 8 May 2011 (UTC)

Ian Charles Stewart[edit]

An IP added him as a cofounder, but I can't find any evidence of this that didn't come from Stewart himself. Is this actually true? Did he make contributions that rise to the level of cofounding? - Richfife (talk) 22:51, 1 August 2013 (UTC)

External links modified[edit]

Hello fellow Wikipedians,

I have just added archive links to one external link on Wired (magazine). Please take a moment to review my edit. If necessary, add {{cbignore}} after the link to keep me from modifying it. Alternatively, you can add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page altogether. I made the following changes:

When you have finished reviewing my changes, please set the checked parameter below to true to let others know.

N Archived sources still need to be checked

Cheers. —cyberbot IITalk to my owner:Online 19:26, 28 August 2015 (UTC)
