Personal Computing, 1977

In July 1977, IEEE’s Computer magazine quoted Jim C. Warren, Jr., of Dr. Dobb’s Journal of Computer Calisthenics and Orthodontia: “What happens when you have access to all the news–not just what’s fit to print–or to a shopping algorithm for price comparison of all supermarkets in a 20-mile radius, or to your congressman’s complete voting record? These are very real possibilities in a field that, in less than three years, has progressed to the point where a personal computing network is probably in two to three months.”
