VJ retired in 1999 from Softbank Comdex, where he was Director of Print and Web Products. The web group used an Oracle Database, in-house Sun servers, and had 7 full time web content staff. Print products at that time included 300+ page show guides and the record-breaking 188 page Comdex Show Daily tabloid newspaper. The operation in 1995 was a beta test site for Microsoft's Front Page with which the editorial content of the newspaper was converted in real time to an on line edition.
Prior to Softbank Comdex, VJ for 15 years was on the staff of IDC/Computerworld as the managing editor of ComputerWorld, and the editor of Computer Business News.
