In 1966 England won the World Cup and Computer Weekly launched the world's first weekly IT newspaper
Changing acroynms and IT terminology
Here on page 10 of our first edition Computer Weekly covered "packaged programs" for industry and a new IT shared services centre in Cockfosters, London. This just goes to show that the buzz around ERP and cloud is 45-year-old hype, writes Cliff Saran, managing editor, technology (2001 to present).
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.
