Computer Associates has tapped IBM software executive John Swainson to lead the company as its new chief executive, sources said.
What's interesting is that I knew this well before the press had picked up the story.  Not because I work for IBM...but because starting at 9:30 CST yesterday, I had a trail of google hits arriving at looking for "John Swainson leaving IBM Computer Associates" and the like.  
Interesting to see the web become a news dissemination tool -- even though at the time of those hits, there were no "official" reports of the news.
