Edits removed[edit]

I am fairly new to contributing to wikipedia. I am curious as to why me edits were removed. I know Jerry Weinberg, so I added a few recent items to the entry. DwayneP 22:37, 25 August 2006 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done info is moved in again ([1]). ----Erkan Yilmaz 08:46, 1 May 2009 (UTC)

Detailled publication list[edit]

I removed the following detailled publication list from the article. I think such a list doesn't help give the audience an introduction. I think this article definetly deserves improvement. But not with lists like this. -- Marcel Douwe Dekker (talk) 14:35, 19 May 2009 (UTC)

'... publishing with Dorset House since 1970'[edit]

I don't know who added that information to the article, but as someone who worked at Yourdon Inc from 1979 till the early 1990s, I know that Dorset House was founded by the in-house staff of Yourdon Press right around 1983. I don't believe that Jerry could have moved over to Dorset House before then. --MaxHund (talk) 16:28, 13 August 2009 (UTC)````

I got that information from his linkedin page, see here. -- Marcel Douwe Dekker (talk) 21:13, 13 August 2009 (UTC)
