What struck me as missing from that list was one of the first
computer mags that addressed what was to be the home/small-business
computer market.

And that was "The Intelligent Machines Journal". That's one set of
mags I wish I had not thrown out. Had a complete set except
for the last issue which got lost in the changeover when they
changed their name to Infoworld.

It seemed like some others were missing, but I didn't look real
close at the list.

Wasn't "The Intelligent Machines Journal" started as publicity
for the West Coast Computer Faire, though maybe published first
under a different name? My memory of it, admittedly dim, is
that it was published by Jim Warren, and started as publicity
for the Faire. I know I got something from time to time,
it was in a newspaper form, that had some actual articles.

That's one thing I did not keep, which is why my memory of it
is limited.

In article <bk8i0r$2or$ XXXX@XXXXX.COM >,

I don't know if was started as publicity but it was a subscripton
newspaper - and I think it may hade been biweekly. It really was
the first of it's type - and I guess that's why it was purchased
and renamed infoworld.

I'm sorry I didn't keep mine as it was the best and most timely
document in the fast changing world of small computers.

I have other old mags that I've saved in crates and I'm going to
have to see what I'm going to part with as I start cleaning up.
I've lived in the same house for eons and you know how things

There is a saying somwhere that 'three moves is the same as 1
fire'. But I just find a way to stack something else on top of
what is in the corner. :-)
