Articles by Alan Zisman 2001

End on an era. Late in 2001, Vancouver Computes ceased publication. Vancouver was just too small a city to support three free computer magazines. Since I had been writing for it (and its predecessor The Computer Player) since 1992, this saddened me more than just as the loss of a venue.

On the other hand, I began writing tips for high-tech superstore Future Shop-- these were distributed in several e-mailings that the retailer sends out regularly. I'm not posting these 100-word shorties here; as a result, they will probably be lost to posterity. And near the end of the year, I started posted some work online at

My High Tech Office column continued in Business in Vancouver; 2001 columns are linked here.

Note that where there are two links for an article, the first is to the posting on my site, the second links to the publisher's website.
