computer beginnings

an interesting glimpse of computer history is provided by Kim Moser. Here's how she explains her initiative:

"In the 1980s I wrote dozens of letters to companies asking for more information on their products. Some of them manufactured hardware or wrote software while others were vendors of other companies' products. I kept all the materials they sent me, from catalogs of software to brochures for new products, in a stack which eventually grew to over a foot high with hundreds of sheets of paper. Recently while going through my archives I decided to scan the more interesting stuff and make it available online."

Featuring Apple, Atari, Citibank, Commodore, Fairchild, Odyssey, Osborne, RCA, TCUG, Timex and Ventura.
