What does DATAMATION mean?

Datamation is a computer magazine that was published in print form in the United States between 1957 and 1998, and has since continued publication on the web. Today, Datamation is owned by QuinStreet and is published as an online magazine at Datamation.com. When Datamation was first launched in 1957, it was not clear there would be a significant market for a computer magazine given how few computers there were. The idea for the magazine came from Donald Prell who was Vice President of Application Engineering at a Los Angeles computer input-output company. In 1957, the only place his company could advertise their products was in either Scientific American or Business Week. Prell had discussed the idea with John Diebold who started AUTOMATION magazine, and that was the inspiration for the name DATAMATION. Thompson Publications of Chicago agreed to publish the magazine. In 1995, working in partnership with Bolt Beranek and Newman, Datamation launched one of the first online publications, Datamation.com. In 1996, Datamation editors Bill Semich, Michael Lasell and April Blumenstiel, received the first-ever Jesse H. Neal Editorial Achievement Award for an online publication. The Neal Award is the highest award for business journalism in the U.S.
