Worth a read – this interview with Bryan Glick, editor of Computing, on the changes he has witnessed in his career and the last 10 years of journalism.
Glick discusses how the role of Computing as a news outlet has changed with the advent of the internet; the differences in being a journalist ‘now’ and ‘then’; and how the title’s relationship with PRs and technology companies has changed.
One choice quote from Glick:
“I remember the three-inch stack of fading, curled-up fax papers someone had to check in case there was a nugget of news we missed. Today, I couldn’t even tell you what our fax number is.”
