Every time I think I’m learning my job around here, new people show up who make me work harder to keep up with them.
The latest role models making me pale by comparison are a new technical editor and a new full-time administrator for the Windows Secrets Lounge.
Tracey (whose last name is pronouned “CAY pen”) was executive editor of reviews at PC World magazine for 10 years, from 1995 to 2005. In that capacity, he was executive manager of the PC World Test Center and assigned stories to a staff of eight editors.
Prior to PC World, Tracey was managing editor of reviews at InfoWorld magazine from 1993 to 1995. There he oversaw a staff of 34 editors, technical analysts, and test developers. Earlier, he worked from 1989 to 1992 in InfoWorld’s test center and as networking editor. (My long-ago InfoWorld column, Window Manager, ran from 1991 to 2003 and overlapped Tracey’s tenure, but he and I never met because I seldom visited the mag’s old San Mateo offices.)
