Maybe you drink white wine only with fish. Or only with lunch. Or only at midsummer baby showers when the keg runs out. Well, get ready for white Burgundies big enough to decant (that’s right—decant) all winter, the best champagne for fried chicken, and Chardonnay that’s not just for aging socialites. You’ll never skip the “whites” section again.

The mobile device has transformed from a decade ago with people relying on it to keep them constantly connected, and share most every facet of their life via social media.
TIME magazine asked its readers from all over this great planet to take photos with their mobile phones and post them to Instagram using the hashtag #TIMEwireless. They received over 31,000 entries from more than 120 countries and the editorial team selected 288 to appear on the cover of the latest issue of TIME. We actually felt obligated to tag TIME on Instagram, but none of Social Irony’s photos made the cut. However we have a few friends that did have their images published and a big congrats to you!

People in the publishing industry agree, the “September Issue” is always the biggest and best ever, especially from Vogue. We can’t argue with that… since we’ve known for years that “Social Media is Sexy, Kinda.” Thank you Fast Company for reaffirming what we knew all along. Check out the September issue because it’s chockfull of great content. The only complaint, they could have made Mindy Kaling look a whole lot sexier on the cover.
Fashion and Instagram. Since the era of couturier Coco Chanel, fashion fiends have entrusted their style sense to magazines like Vogue, Vanity Fair, and W; indulging in the inspiring images that define fashion and capture the essence of being ‘en vogue.’ Thanks to the innovation of the printing press, people started contracting consumerism like some sort of epidemic. Alas, nowadays print is dead and the world has turned to digitalism while being thrust into a reinvented era—an era that can outrun the printing press in a heartbeat; running on Wi-Fi rather than basic mechanics.
After years of flipping through the pages of sports and fashion magazines, technology has made everyone’s job much easier, as we can now scroll through the images with one finger on our smartphones. Yes, I am talking about Instagram and it’s addictive nature: a cellular app defined by the company as “a fast, beautiful and fun way to share your photos with friends and family.” However, the photo sharing does not stop there. In fact, photos shared on Instagram have the ability to go viral in the same way images in Vogue once did; and the reach is growing exponentially. The difference between Instagram and Vogue, you see, is instant gratification. Unlike the reign of the magazine, in this day and age people crave speed. It has become a form of common sense as social media has morphed within a generation. The fashion industry knows this, and as a result thousands of brands and bloggers alike have manipulated the app’s intended purpose of sharing images with friends and family, opting to share their images—their names—with the world. From behind the scenes images from the latest Vogue photo-shoot, to instant front row images from Paris Fashion Week, Instagram continues to influence and change our lives.

If all you can think about is Instagram, then this is for you! TIME magazine wants your Instagram photos to illustrate a story on mobile technology. The goal is to feature your photos from around the world, showing as many countries as possible. To join in on the project, use the hashtag #TIMEwireless when posting your pictures on Instagram. Photographs must be original and select winners will have their images published in a future issue of TIME magazine.
It’s been said before, but it needs saying again (and again and again): PRINT IS DEAD. Across the publishing industry and even the music industry recognizes this. YOURCODENAMEIS:MILO
