Rob O’Regan on InfoWorld

“I will never have as much fun as I did in the PC Week newsroom during the late ’80s and early ’90s. It’s too bad that the leaders of great publications like PC Week and InfoWorld let new competition (CNet), new media (the Web) and a paryalyzing unwillingness to embrace new publishing models pull the rug out from underneath them. The writing was on the wall for print rags like InfoWorld long ago; look for others to follow.”

Amen. I am tempted to disagree with the “never have as much fun” part — in 1995 did that for me. But Rob is dead on, PC Week vs. InfoWorld was a classic war between newspapers.
