R.I.P. Founder Patrick J. McGovern

PCWorld Founder and IDG Chairman Patrick J. McGovern dies at 76

Although I wasn’t fond of the way he did business in the way it affected me personally, he has to be acknowledged as having some great foresight.

He had a sense of humor about himself too. In one presentation slide, a cartoonist drew him in a state of surprise and his wig was airborne above his head. He let that stand and everyone in his various companies who saw that slideshow also saw that cartoon.
