In 1966 England won the World Cup and Computer Weekly launched the world's first weekly IT newspaper
Paul Simmonds, president of the Jericho Forum and former CISO of ICI, says, "With its strong understanding of what makes the business tick, Computer Weekly has always been a great partner for the Jericho Forum. Computer Weekly wrote the first, incisive article to launch the group and build awareness of de-perimeterisation."
The first issue of Computer Weekly magazine in 1966 was the start of an era in the UK IT industry – the first ever weekly technology publication. When the final print edition of the magazine comes out on 19 April, it will be the start of another exciting era, where Computer Weekly goes fully digital, reflecting the dramatic changes that the internet has brought to not just our business but those of all our readers.
