Goodbye to Pat McGovern, Founder of IDG

I worked for Pat McGovern in the late 1980’s, a sort of golden era for IDG, the International Data Group. I worked in the consumer division, located in Peterborough New Hampshire. Some of IDG’s consumer publications had been launched by Wayne Green, a brilliant and colorful character in his own right; many others were launched in that Peterborough lab during those years of creativity and opportunity: magazines for the Apple, for the PC, for portable computing and family computing; some of the first “disk” magazines; and, from Patrick Ferrell in California, the first consumer gaming magazine, GamePro.
