Patrick J. McGovern, founder and chairman of IDG — publisher of Macworld, TechHive, and PCWorld — died 19 March 2014 at age 76. “Over a span of 50 years, McGovern oversaw IDG’s launch of more than 300 magazines and newspapers and championed the expansion of IDG’s network to include more than 460 websites, 200 mobile apps and 700 events worldwide.” He was known for remembering employees’ names, even as the IDG empire grew, and hand-delivering each U.S. employee’s Christmas bonus. Former IDG president Walter Boyd will replace him as chairman.favicon follow link
