Thanks Macworld!

Today Macworld Magazine officially ended, after a 30-year run.

I just want to take a moment to show gratitude for the spirit of the early days of the Mac, much of which we invested in Macworld. I remember seeing the lines for software at ComputerWare in Palo Alto, thinking this could work. We could have a community of software-makers and users who loved each other. We could make tools for them, and they would tell their friends.

The focal points for the then-young industry were the print publications: Macworld, MacUser and MacWEEK, all of which are gone now. Dave Bunnell, Dan Farber, Dave Ushijima, Steven Levy believed in what we were doing, I couldn't believe they did, and they reported on our accomplishments, and reviewed our products, not always favorably, of course.

Some us are gone now, those of us who remain have gray hair, and fond memories. Macworld was good to us. Just wanted to say thanks!
