The company, which Pat McGovern founded above a Newton pizza place in 1964 after raising funds by selling his car - runs scores of Web sites and print publications around the world on high-tech topics, as well as a technology consulting firm. At one point, the company started up Computerworld Antarctica so it could boast of having publications on all seven continents.
IDG has a small headquarters in the Back Bay, with the bulk of its US operations located in offices in Framingham.
McGovern died in 2014.
Ed. note: I have a bit of a personal stake in this since I still have IDG ESOP shares from my days there.
