Terror in Granby
Tom Bagsarian, Rick Yelton

CIO
Six Simple Rules for Successful Self-Service
Alice Dragoon, Elana Varon, David Rosenbaum, Owen Edwards, Albert Sacco

 

Judging comments:
"The reporter did a spectacular job of using concrete examples of what to do -- and what not to do. An immense amount of research helps make this article a winner. Limiting it to just 6 steps also makes it more approachable. Real-world examples were the key to presenting the information in a digestible, workable manner."

Judging comments:
"It's easy for technology articles to slip into the how-to category. Unfortunately, they are usually too long or complicated even for the intended audience. PC World does a beautiful job of quickly identifying issues clearly, then solving them just as easily."
