"Because of the unprecedented adverse economic climate, advertisement and copy sale revenues have declined in parallel with the contraction of the monthly personal computer magazine market, to the point that the title is no longer economically viable..."
In short, I've been reading Personal Computer World more or less all the time I've been a Computing teacher, I've been a subscriber for at least twenty years, and have never hesitated to recommend it to Computing teachers and students alike. It will be sadly missed and I'm not sure what I'll subscribe to instead - I'm not aware of any other computing magazine like it.
An obituary from a former editor makes interesting reading as does the reaction from a contributor and of particular interest is Guy Kewney's assertion that falling advertising revenue was not the only problem!
Can anyone suggest an alternative now that PCW is gone?
