It is not, it must be said, the most propitious time to be launching a new magazine, but Conde Nast have recently launched two. Fashion doorstopper Love and the UK version of Wired. I was a regular consumer of the US edition when it launched but haven't bought a copy for years, although I do visit its website regularly. I also remember the first attempt to launch a UK Wired in the mid 90s and that didn't last long. But I wish them luck with this incarnation. (Call me old-fashioned but I still like magazines, even if I find myself buying fewer and fewer of them nowadays.) I've already got my launch issue (though yet to do more than flick through it) and a 32-page digital sampler can be viewed here.
