Here are this week's reads, just in time to help you have an awesome weekend. We're going to skip the survey this week, since we're still reading comments and tallying results from the last one, but it will return next week.  

 

Also, ServoCity is back, so this week's picks are their treat. Thanks guys for making this happen! 

 

That's it, enjoy!

The Altair 8800
The Altair 8800
The Spark That Ignited a Revolution
 
I'll never forget the day I saw my first personal computer. I was about 10 years old, attending a small New Jersey school, when I walked into the classroom where it was kept. It was an Altair 8800, which my school had acquired in 1976. Seeing that machine for the first time, it was a bit like all of my dreams from watching Star Trek and Hal from 2001: A Space Odyssey had come true.
