Dear Ron Whittaker,

"I have all issues of Personal Computing magazine from September 1977, a real source of pioneer home computer history. "
I was the editor-in-chief of Personal Computing magazine in 1982 and 1983. All my issues during my tenure were lost during an interstate move. In an early 1983 issue, I think it was, my editor's memo put forward the idea that personal computers would personalize the cognitive revolution in the same way that the internal combustion engine personalized the industrial revolution.
If you could locate that page in your store of issues and send me a copy in some way I would be most grateful. Scan and e-mail perhaps or photocopy and snail mail, whatever is easiest. I'll reimburse you, of course, for any costs.
This 84-y-o guy has fond memories of those pioneer days of personal computing and brush-ups with such characters as Bill Gates and Steve Jobs.
