Comings and goings
The Federal Computer Week team is pleased to announce the return of Bob Brewin to the editorial staff.
Brewin originally joined FCW in June 1987, the first year of the magazine's existence, heading up Defense Department coverage for 12 years. During his tenure, he traveled wherever the news was—Croatia and Bosnia in 1996, for example, and the Pacific Rim in 1997.
He also broke some of the biggest DOD information technology stories of the 1990s, including the genesis of the Navy Marine Corps Intranet and fierce battles about Army outsourcing.
For the past five years, he has been a reporter at Computerworld, covering wireless technology, health IT and assorted beats. In
his return as an editor at large at FCW, Brewin will again cover DOD, with Frank Tiboni, as well as wireless and health-related technology.
