“Forbes’s legendary editor, Jim Michaels, brought his own special brand of journalism to the magazine. For more than 30 years, he cut to the heart of what it meant to be a successful capitalist — and often through the hearts of many renowned corporate executives who didn’t get it. I worked for Jim in the 1990’s. ‘That’s not writing,’ he used to say when a story didn’t live up to his standards. ‘That’s typing.’ He lived and breathed the principles of blogging decades before it came into being.” — Forbes chief product officer Lewis D’Vorkin writing about Forbes‘ heritage earlier this week on his blog.
