Inquirer PC columnist ends his run

April 9, 2006

Reid Goldsborough, who has written a column on personal computers in the Philadelphia Inquirer, has written his last column about the topic in Sunday’s newspaper after exactly 300 columns. He writes that his editors want to devote the space to more business news.

Reid GoldsboroughGoldsborough writes, “What I’ve tried to do, more than anything else, with the exactly 300 columns I’ve now written for The Inquirer is make PCs more accessible. I’ve tried to speak to soccer moms as well as tech gurus, teens as well as seniors, managers as well as office workers.

“My column has been about information technology issues as well as recommendations, and I’ve tried to stay in front of the trends. I’ve had successes here as well as failures. I predicted the dot-com collapse when other journalists were still playing up Internet investments, and those readers who followed my advice and got out of this market in time wound up saving themselves a lot of money.”
