    The advent of the inexpensive LSI microprocessor and inexpensive memory has upset many of our cherished assumptions about economies of scale. The spectrum of plausible realities must now include computer systems which are essentially one user on one machine. In current parlance these are "small-scale systems," but they are small only in relative cost and physical size. Today's small-scale system c... View full abstract»

    Within the past two years, a new technical hobby has come into existence: computers. It appears that there may be in excess of 20,000 computers in not-for-profit use in homes and garages today–purchased, presumably, from the family's entertainment budget. View full abstract»

    There is little question that the current enthusiasm in personal computing was catalyzed by the introduction of the MITS Altair computer kit in January 1975. This computer kit demonstrated by its cost (originally less than $400) that individuals could now afford a computer. And by its design the Altair established a standard bus structure for the personal computing industry. View full abstract»

    For the professional software designer, the hobby and home computer movement has created a curious and at times painful dilemma. On one hand, the movement represents a large and growing market–one in obvious need of professionally developed software. On the other hand, that same market offers a very narrow profit margin. Worst of all, it seems to be characterized by a kind of anarchic morali... View full abstract»

    The Learning Research Group at Xerox Palo Alto Research Center is concerned with all aspects of the communication and manipulation of knowledge. We design, build, and use dynamic media which can be used by human beings of all ages. Several years ago, we crystallized our dreams into a design idea for a personal dynamic medium the size of a notebook (the Dynabook) which could be owned by everyone an... View full abstract»

    The primary method of entering large amounts of routinely produced, hand-printed data into computer systems is via manual keyboards. Manual retranscription, however, entails a number of disadvantages such as extra cost, delays, and errors. View full abstract»

    Important directions for research were defined at a workshop on distributed fault-tolerant computers, held November 3-5, 1976, in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society's Technical Committee on Fault-Tolerant Computing, chaired by John Meyer, and the Micro/Mini Computers TC, chaired by William Dejka, the workshop attracted 46 participants to discuss this rapidly developing a...
