Don Tuite retires after 11 years as power and analogue editor

Don Tuite retires from Electronic Design magazine

Don Tuite, for the last 11 years the power and analogue editor at Penton’s Electronic Design magazine, has announced his retirement at the age of 71-and-a-half.

You can read his farewell statement and what he has to say about the state of technical communications here. Don’s an engineer through-and-through, and a ham radio hobbyist along the way. I first met him over 10 years ago at one of his favourite lunchtime haunts near Redwood City, CA. An impressive technical intellect, he will be missed by the electronic engineering and editorial communities and it will be interesting to see if Penton manages to find someone anywhere near as technically capable to replace him.
