Guy Kewney dies at 63
The man who made Britain love computers
RIP Veteran technology writer Guy Kewney died this morning.
He had been suffering from bowel and liver cancer for over a year.
Guy had been a force in UK tech journalism UK since the 1960s, writing for magazines including Electronics Weekly, Computing, and New Scientist.
He was perhaps most famously associated with Personal Computer World, a title which many techies thank - or blame - for getting them into PCs in the first place.
From there he went to Ziff Davis as part of the UK launch of PC Magazine, and subsequently wrote for a slew of other titles. In more recent years he ran his own news site, newswireless.net, and contributed to other titles including The Register. Somehow, Guy also managed to squeeze in stints at PC channel titles Microscope and PC Dealer, magazines without which, arguably, The Register would not exist.
