PC World editor quits — again
Harry McCracken, the editor of PC World magazine who quit one year ago in a dispute about a killed story, has resigned again, this time to start his own venture.
Amy Novak of MIN Online writes, “He will continue to play a role at PC World as contributing editor. ‘PC World has lots of ambitious things in the works. Even though I won’t be on staff, I’m looking forward to seeing them become reality in the coming months,’ he wrote.
“McCracken told Minonline today, ‘PC World is strong and will continue to be great without me. I loved my time here, but I don’t get to spend as much time with the products, which is what I really want to do.’ While details of his new venture are still largely undisclosed, McCracken confirmed it will be a product-based technology website.
“McCracken has survived a largely tumultuous 14-year career at PC World, including a firing and rehiring (and in May of last year, a resignation), but he has also won many accolades, such as the 2008 Timothy White Neal Award. He was also named to Min Magazine’s 2007 Most Intriguing List.“
