A few days ago I received the final printed edition of Macworld magazine. Even though I get most of my information these days digitally, I could never bring myself to cancel my subscription. There was something comforting about receiving it on my doorstep. Nobody should be surprised about any print publication shuttering in 2014 but that doesn’t make it any less sad. Having made a small contribution over the last few years and seeing the Macworld team in action at Macworld expo, I can attest, Macworld was published by a fine group of geeks.
It is bittersweet to find a small automation piece I wrote made it into the final edition. I’ve published a lot of things in my life but I have to admit I always got a little bit of a thrill seeing my name in the magazine when it arrived.
