Over on the ESUG mailing list, Felix shares a link he just found: [I] just found the BYTE-Smalltalk issue at archive.org: http://archive.org/details/byte-magazine-1981-08 The May 85 issue has some nice Smalltalk-articles too (starting at page 151): http://archive.org/stream/byte-magazine-1985-05/1985_05_BYTE_10-05_Multiprocessing#page/n151/mode/2up This is especially interesting in the context of the fact that some of the grey bearded Smalltalkers of the… Continue reading Read the original “Byte” issue on Smalltalk from 1981 online
