Finding Answers

Neither print nor online gives readers enough options to answer their own specific questions, but In Depth, by integrating both tightly, is designed to give readers the best from each medium.

Much as I love the Web, it has its weaknesses. It's hard to take on airplanes, for example, and reading anything really long can make your eyes cross.

Print, on the other hand, is portable and easy on the eyes but isn't so great if you need to dig for more detail or find answers to specific questions a story raises in your mind.

That's why we're combining the two, in this first edition of our monthly In Depth special report. Each In Depth will focus on a specialty area readers have identified as important to them.

In print, you'll find stories probing various aspects of the topic, all tied to exclusive online stories that go into even greater depth, sidebars on related topics, research, and community activities designed to enhance the value of the information you get from Computerworld in print and online.

All of that, plus other related Computerworld content, will live at our enhanced In Depth sites at, continually updated with news, opinions and new research links to help you keep up to date and focus your research on topics of interest to you.

So you get the portability of print, the resources of the Web and input from your peers in Computerworld communities, served up in ways designed to be convenient. Let us know how it works for you.
