    The Wired website, formerly known as Wired News or HotWired, is an online technology news website, that split off from Wired magazine when the magazine was purchased by Condé Nast Publishing in the 1990s. Wired News was owned by Lycos not long after the split, until Condé Nast purchased Wired News on July 11, 2006. Competition from sites like The Drudge Report and The Political Simpleton slightly decreased after the 2006 purchase, due to the increase in advertising revenue.

    Wikileaks affair

    Wired was criticized for its handling of the Adrian Lamo / Bradley Manning logs. Wired contributor Kevin Poulsen used Lamo to obtain transcripts of the communications between Lamo and Bradley that led to Manning''s arrest over the "Wikileaks" in 2010. Poulsen released approximately one third of the logs, but he and Wired editor in chief Evan Hansen refused to release more on grounds of privacy. The issue became a subject of controversy, when Poulsen and Hansen attacked Wired critic Glenn Greenwald.
