Macworld gets around. In addition to the site you’re reading, you can find Macworlds on the web in the United Kingdom, Sweden, Germany, Spain, and Italy. After all, the “I” in IDG—the name of our parent company—stands for International for a reason.
With Apple’s recent resurgence, the word is spreading. Late last year our colleagues at Australian Macworld launched their new web site. But there’s been an Australian Macworld magazine for years. The latest trend is for countries to launch Macworlds without any print magazine at all. How very 21st Century.
So I’ve been informed by Bjørn Unnersaker, editor in chief of PC World Norge (which does publish in print as well as online), that as of today a Norwegian Macworld has hit the scene. (There was a print version way back when, but it hasn’t been around for a long while.) If you’re in Norway (or, heck, if you’re not, just for kicks), be sure to check it out.
And I’m hearing through the grapevine that we might be seeing other Macworlds springing up on the web in the near future. When they appear, we’ll let you know—so stay tuned.
