Re: Penton Media Ceasing publication of iProDeveloper & Power IT Pro



fixed

Couldn't have said it better myself, Steve.

Not only is the information repetitive, uninteresting, and in some cases a
far reach to being applicable to our industry, that same information was
super saturated in our market.

Back in the day when Midrange and News400 magazines were the big 2, that
was even close to being too much. Then they went away and all the
different "e-zines/blogs" appeared. Each trying to do their own thing
instead of consolidating and fine tuning the content.

Rarely did I ever read any of them (time being one issue). But normally if
there was something worthwhile it popped up on these Midrange lists or as a
search result when I was looking for an answer to a question. :)

all of the industry pubs, with the exception of Timothy Pricket Morgan at
IT Jungle, are not very interesting these days. I would like to read about
which vendors are ripping off their customers and which do not. Who
provides great tech support. Interview retired IBMers for their perspective
on what is going on now and recount projects they worked on. Ask people
about user group sessions they have liked. Research shops to find out what
they are spending their money on. What it actually cost to upgrade to a
720. New techniques that programmers are using that simplify their apps or
save time. Review the ebay market from time to time and interview the
established sellers. Report salary and contractor rates people are getting
around the country and international. Report to the reader the company
names and locations where ibm i is being used. News like that would
interest me.
