I have it on very good authority that Computerworld Magazine is naming Scot Finnie as the next editor in chief.
I'm very happy for Scot. In addition to being a very good friend of mine, he's a dedicated and hard-working writer with an absolute passion for the computer industry. He has written with great foresight on the re-emergence of the Mac as well as the problems Microsoft has had creating enthusiasm for Vista in the business world.
The current editor in chief, Don Tennant, is an excellent writer and very bright fellow. He has spent time at the National Security Agency, as have I, and no doubt we both came by our fascination with the world of computing from that assignment. I further have no doubt that he could find no one more qualified and worthy to hand his reigns to than Scot.
I know Computerworld Magazine will only improve under Scot's skillful guidance. I wish him and his family all the best as he begins his new assignment.
