A college dream comes true as my first book, The Naked Computer (with John Gantz) is published to rave reviews from New York to Silicon Valley. John and I were often referred to as “The Computer Liberaces.”
Hired as Senior Editor, Special Projects, at Computerworld newsmagazine. Two years later, I’m fired in an attempted editorial coup d’état led by sales and marketing. In between, I get to interview Thomas J. Watson, Sr., who founded IBM.
