Business-like, isn't he?



Articles by Alan Zisman 1997

Following the sale of the Vancouver Computer Player to The Computer Paper/Canada Computes, I began writing three monthly columns: Softwary appeared in the Vancouver edition only. You Asked Us: PC, responding to reader technical questions, appeared in both Toronto and Vancouver editions, and TechTalk appeared in Canadian Computer Wholesaler. As well, I wrote many other articles, which appeared in various editions, including in Quebec Micro (in French translation)

My High Tech Office column continued in Business in Vancouver; 1997 columns are linked here.
