Tim Palmer, the founder and Editor of Computergram International, has died at the age of 54. Renowned as a guru of the IT industry and a consummate and professional journalist, Tim began his career at Plessey in the 1960s, and moved into computer journalism more than twenty years ago when he joined Computer Weekly. In 1980 he launched the industry’s first daily newsletter, the Infomatics Daily Bulletin. In 1984 he set up APT Data (now ComputerWire) in partnership with Peter White, and Computergram International was born. In the fourteen years since, he has never had a day off sick, and scarcely knew the meaning of the word holiday. Tim has been away from his desk for only three weeks, and his death – from cancer – has come as a blow to all who knew and worked with him. Fortunately, he was always willing to share his knowledge with those around him. Nothing would have stopped him producing an issue, and therefore we offer today’s in his honor and memory. Appreciations from Peter White and others appear in today’s BarbedWire section.
