Chris Anderson is confident that the magazine format is here to stay, as long as it makes the most of the unique attributes of magazine design, energetically pursuing luscious images, diagrams, and illustrations, with dramatic layout and rich production values. He feels the ambivalence of working to create a magazine that is owned by Condé Nast and writing books that are distributed by Disney, while in his heart he wants to celebrate the possibilities offered by the Internet to serve individual needs and desires in niches of focused interest. He believes that the print side of Wired should strive to add value to the Web, while the Web serves the endless expanse of amateur interests, even as it relies on the printed magazine to pay the bills.
