Byte Magazine Archives

Earlier this week I accidentally stumbled on where they are hosting an extensive backlog of old issues of Byte magazine. This magazine was an American microcomputer magazine, influential in the late 1970s and throughout the 1980s (and well before my time).

I’ve been skimming through a couple of these old magazines, and I got quite intrigued by some of these old topics. Probably one of the more popular issues was the one on Smalltalk, but there are others on Lisp, Pascal and several varying topics as well. These old issues have been scanned in and can be downloaded as a PDF, ePub, Mobi, etc. … .

If you’re as interested in computer history as I am, then you should definitely check these out.

Hi, thank you for visiting my blog and reading all the crap that I'm posting here. I'm a senior software engineer at SD WORX. Developing software is one of my greatest passions in life, and I enjoy doing it every single day. I've got three kids (Len, Lisa & Laura) who constantly remind me that there is more in life than just programming all day. They are the greatest kids in the whole world. And last but not least, there's my girlfriend who is my inspiration in life. You can always contact me at jan_dot_van_dot_ryswyck at
