A long time ago



Image result for pc world christina woodBack in the 90s, I was an editor at PC World.
Those were wild days for covering technology. You had to know how to talk to the machine, spreadsheets were new(ish), millionaire tech moguls were just getting a start. The parties were amazing. But my friends feared I was too nerdy to invite to parties.

Back then, I led a team of writers and editors to win some of the most prestigious journalism awards ever garnered by a trade magazine at the time, launched the @Home section of the magazine, uncovered scams in the computer industry, and worked as a consumer advocate.

It was a fascinating time to be covering tech. I covered the birth of, among many other things, the Internet.
