VNU ignores Flood warning
Computing keeps bad karma
VNU's IT paper of record, Computing, has lost its number two. The mag's second in command Gary Flood has resigned after failing to negotiate a better job for himself - which was probably the job belonging to Computing chief Douglas Hayward, the technology press's answer to Harold Evans.
Flood is off to investor web site EO. But VNU will be happy they've got an extra desk. The company is in the process of squeezing the ex-Ziff Davies employees into Castle Despair. ®
