100 TechSmart issues ‒ a perspective
s I worked my way through the TechSmart archive to prepare or our 100th issue, it gave me great joy to see how ar the magazine has progressed. What started as an idea discussed round a coldbeer in 00, has resulted in Smart Publishing, a company now employing more than 30 people, withthree magazines in its stable and a burgeoning digital division currently busy with some amazing stu. As with all worthwhile undertakings, it was bloody hard work. At the beginning, our knowledgeabout publishing was as limited as our budget. With such a new magazine, advertisers were scepticalto climb onboard, while our business model – a ree magazine providing quality content sustained byadvertising and a large distribution, was yet unproven. We were supported by some special peoplealong the way, none more so than Dr Wessels Smuts o Business Print Centre, in which TechSmartound a willing partner or a number o years.Since our irst issue in 003, consumer electronics has become an integral part o everyone’s lives,with smartphones, notebooks, tablets and the internet all around us. This was one o the main reasonswhy we started TechSmart; to provide an easy to understand technology magazine, inorming peopleabout the tech choices available. With the magazine, and also with our website, which drew close to48 000 unique visitors in November 011, I hope we’ve achieved that.I sometimes wonder i I would ever have committed to the project i I knew how much hardship andsacriice would have been involved. Looking at this month’s cover, seeing all the previous ones stackedneatly next to each other, there is no doubt I would do it all over again. To all our readers and advertisers, thanks or all your support since 003, without you, we arenothing.Enjoy the 100th issue,Mike (michael@techsmart.co.za)
