JJ Abrams Plays Editor for May Issue 17.05 of Wired Magazine

J.J. Abrams Brings Possibly the Coolest Issue of Wired Yet

This newest issue of Wired Magazine (which I read faithfully), brings together some of my favorite things inside its pages: puzzles, magic, and J.J. Abrams.

Not only is J.J. Abrams responsible for some of the most geek-worthy shows on TV like Lost, Fringe, and Alias, but he produced soon-to-be Spring blockbuster Star Trek (which I have my IMAX tickets for already). So when I heard that he would be helping to whip up the May issue of Wired into something totally fitting of his work, I couldn't wait to get my copy.

Packed with puzzles, mysteries, and science, this issue of Wired should take longer than the average issue to get through — there is something on every page to solve, decode, decipher, and discover. Nothing is an accident.

Check out some behind the scenes footage of J.J. working with the Wired staff, and what you can expect in the next issue when you

As far as I can tell, the only spots that need deciphering are the ones with the JJ Abrams insignia (the black and white circle with wheat looks like atoms inside). If you pick those article apart and study them individually you could crack the code in a simpler way. Since I was reading the magazine in Chapter so I didn't think ripping pages out would be a good idea, but give it a try when you are done with the issue
