Historical Note

During the 1970s and 1980s, all types of computing communities began to print and distribute informal serial publications concerning software, mini-and micro computing,. Many of these publications were short lived - some survived for only an issue or two - and most were produced in small quantities. These materials, with their unusual artwork and printing techniques have become interesting artifacts themselves, while providing today’s researchers with an "alternative" perspective on developments in computing and software during those decades.
