Wired Hires Bill Wasik as Senior Editor

Harper’s editor Bill Wasik is jumping over to Wired as a senior editor on June 28, Conde Nast announced today. Conde Nast (and Wikipedia, citing two sources!) credit Wasik with inventing the “flash mob,” a sudden congregation of people in a public place. He also wrote And Now There’s This, a book about viral culture. Readers can find out more about Wasik on his Tumblr.
