CREATING WIRED

Security, privacy and surveillance: the balancing act

The world’s most pointless upgrade • Ashgabat in Turkmenistan has rebranded with gleaming marble and gold buildings. The problem? It’s pretty much empty…

Clash of the battle royales • Fortnite is the biggest beast in a multiplayer jungle with deep roots

Winning the race for equality • The new W motorsport series aims to redress the gender balance and help women reach pole position

Verified: Wikipedia is our unlikely champion in the war on fake news • As Russian spies will testify, the encyclopedia’s tedious editorial process is far more potent than all Silicon Valley’s algorithms, moderators and fact checkers

Climate-change combat: the new Arctic frontier • Melting ice in the Arctic Circle has opened up new shipping routes in the region and caught the eye of military powers – in particular, Russia

To sleep, perchance to analyse • The Oura ring makes collecting your nocturnal biofeedback data as simple as nodding off

The highs and lows of hi- and low-tops • Missed out on those killer kicks? StockX is a streetwear resale site that tracks the hype – and cash value – of the sneakerheads’ favourites

Germany’s plan to police big tech • Privacy laws and multibillion fines seem to have had little impact on the social media giants. But, in Andreas Mundt, head of the German cartel office, they have found a formidable adversary

To get the best from AI, first update your workers’ mindset • Automation and algorithms are most effective if they’re used in collaboration with human insights and creativity

How to rewrite a bad romance • Using techniques derived from treating PTSD, a Canadian psychologist has developed a way to heal the trauma from emotionally charged breakups

WIRED insider • Events, new products and promotions Compiled by Jake Pummintr

The main act at Glastonbury: mobile data • Forget Wellington boots and clean toilets – it seems Glasto’s 200,000 revellers can’t possibly survive without a decent phone signal…

An eighth-generation alchemist shares his passion for juniper berries

Ready for the floor • With seven albums under their belt, Hot Chip still find new (and old) ways to sound fresh

FOOD + DRINK • THE ESSENTIAL CULINARY PRODUCT EDIT

Which skills will empower the next generation?

KINDERGARTEN CODERS • How ambitious tech-worker parents are getting their kids ahead of the game in computer languages

THE LOST ART OF OFFICE ZEN • The workplace is more digitally demanding than ever – but a little e-hygiene can bring back the balance

OSLO • Norway’s capital is home to a diverse technology scene that’s already making an impact globally
