Byte Magazine

A pioneering magazine which introduced microcomputing to a growing audience in the late 70s and into the 80s. It reached a peak and then declined as other magazines began to pick up by emphasizing segments of the microcomputing landscape.

To see all that is left: Famous (for Smalltalkers) issue of Byte from 1981: ...which followed the ForthLanguage issue of Byte from 1980. The tradition back then was to devote an entire August issue to a ProgrammingLanguage. BTW, these two August editions each broke Byte's sales records.

JerryPournelle often said "RealSoonNow" in his articles therein.
