At the outset, the company produced a computer installation data base, published a newsletter, "EDP Industry and Market Report".

During this time, Mcgovern continued to work as a writer for "Computers and Automation" magazine, the first computer magazine, published by Edmund Berkeley.

McGovern described his having sold his old car for $5,000, to fund the startup of IDC. By its third year, the company had an income of $154,996. A modest net profit of $2,961. McGovern was considering liquidating the company when he hit on the idea of launching Computerworld in 1967, a continuation of the monthly newsletter, published weekly instead of monthly, in a different format, with advertising, which became a cornerstone of IDG's subsequent publishing arm. Subsequently, failing to wrest control of "Computers and Automation" magazine from his friend and mentor, Ed Berkeley, he left Berkeley and founded PC World.

Mander family

The Mander family has held for over 200 years a prominent position in the Midland counties of England, both in the family business and public life. In the early industrial revolution, the Mander family entered the vanguard of the expansion of Wolverhampton, on the edge of the largest manufacturing conurbation in the British Isles. Mander Brothers was a major employer in the city of Wolverhampton, a progressive company which became the Number One manufacturers of varnish and printing ink in the British Empire; the family became distinguished for art patronage and philanthropy. Charles Tertius Mander was created the first baronet of The Mount in the baronetage of the United Kingdom in the Coronation honours of George V, on 8 July 1911; the family were yeoman farmers, settled since about 1291 at Tredington on the Warwickshire/Worcestershire borders of Midland England. The Wolverhampton family descends from Henry Mander, of Aston Cantlow, whose son, Samuel Mander, migrated about 1695 to Lapworth Hall (also known as'Irelands'], where the family remained for about 200 years.

In 1742, his grandson Thomas Mander, a younger son, migrated a few miles north to Wolverhampton a market town of just 7,500 people. There he settled as a merchant and manufacturer, in due course inherited property from the family of his wife, Elizabeth Clemson, in John Street, which today forms the core of the modern city. Benjamin and John Mander were Thomas's sons. By 1773, they were setting up a cluster of loosely integrated businesses in Wolverhampton, including one of the largest chemical manufacturing works in the country, together with businesses in baking and tin-plate working and gas manufacture. Benjamin Mander was chairman of the Wolverhampton Union Flour and Bread Company, a milling co-operative company set up for charitable purposes to provide subsidised bread and flour in the period of social distress following the Napoleonic Wars; the two brothers campaigned against the slave trade, founded chapels and schools, entered into local politics as town commissioners, four Manders sitting at one time for the Georgian borough.

Hereafter, the eldest sons of the senior line of the family have been given the first name Charles: Charles Mander, the eldest son of Benjamin, founded a varnish works in 1803, to prosper though the 19th century.

Charles Benjamin Mander JP was the eldest son of Charles, he established the first publicly funded institution for art education in Britain in 1852. As a town councillor, he campaigned for clean drinking water fountains, for the free library in Wolverhampton. With the rise of the railways, he expanded the business of Mander Brothers, forming a partnership with his brother Samuel in 1845.

Sir Charles Tertius Mander JP, DL, the eldest son of Benjamin, among many public offices was uniquely four times mayor of Wolverhampton 1892-6, an alderman, was awarded an honorary freedom of the borough. He was a progressive industrialist and manufacturer as the first chairman of Mander Brothers, the family paint and varnish works, but in many other companies, including a Midland electrical company credited with the invention of the spark plug, he was created the first baronet of the Mount, Tettenhall Wood, for his public services on 8 July 1911. Sir Charles Arthur Mander JP, DL, TD, the second baronet, was the elder son of Charles Tertius by Mary Le Mesurier, daughter of Henry Nicholas Paint, a Member of the Dominion Parliament of Canada, he was twice mayor of Wolverhampton, an honorary freeman of the borough.
