Commercial peak

Paul Mason, deputy editor (1999-2001), who is curently, Economics Editor, BBC Newsnight, says: "I came into Computer Weekly at time when it was about to hit its commercial peak - Y2K, the dotcom boom and mobile comms. We covered all these things and the big tech platform changes. As the deputy editor I can remember the team. I was dealing with two Freedom of Information award winners, Bill Goodwin and Tony Collins."


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.
