When you think tech magazines, you think Wired. Whenever I had spare money as a kid, I’d catch the train in to the city, pop in to McGills in Melbourne’s CBD and buy a copy of Wired direct from the USA that I’d pour over until the next month. When I was an adult with spare money, I subscribed to it between 2007 and 2011. The early issues were almost 400 pages each! I guess we had a lot of nerdy internet culture related stuff to talk about, but nowhere else to put it.
Everyone goes through stages in their life where they identify with a certain community or culture. For some people it’s a genre of music, cars, a sport or similar. For me it’s Apple between 2003 and 2013, which is why I’m grateful to @georgeharito for donating his personal collection of Australian Macworld magazines from 2004 to 2010 for me to scan.
The first batch of magazines I completed scanning is an almost complete set of Electronics Australia (also called Radio, Television and Hobbies prior to March 1965) spanning over a decade from 1962 to 1973.
