Irvine, CA, May 9, 2006 -- Scannell, who most recently worked as Senior Editor, Technology, for VAR Business magazine, has been a technology journalist for more than 26 years at publications such as Infoworld and Computerworld, where he served as Editor at Large.

In his new role, Scannell will oversee the editorial operation and direction of the magazine as well as report and write in-depth features and news analysis stories.
"I've worked on and off with Ed for some 22 years, and I can’t think of anyone with more insight into Microsoft, better contacts, and as many creative strategic ideas for the magazine, Web sites, newsletters, and events," says Doug Barney, Editor in Chief of Redmond magazine. "Ed has covered Microsoft from the early days of MS-DOS through the Windows revolution and now where Microsoft competes in nearly every facet of the technology market."
