Business-like, isn't he?



Articles by Alan Zisman 1996

The first full year of the Internet explosion, was also the year that Our Computer Player, renamed Computer Player, along with its stablemate Canadian Computer Wholesaler were sold to the publishing empire that, among others, publishes The Computer Paper, Toronto Computes, Ottawa Computes (etc), and Quebec Micro (en francais). While the Player kept its name (at least for a while), more and more, its editorial content came from Toronto Computes. What that meant for me was that many of my articles went national, appearing in various Canada Computes publications as well as in Vancouver's Computer Player.

My High Tech Office column continued in Business in Vancouver; 1996 columns are linked here.
