(Overview statement that summarizes the various answers to the fundamental question; Why Softalk magazine?)
The Project thread explains why the "how" of this project here is worth doing. Here, we explain that, at the core, the 4 volumes of Softalk magazine are a unique and significant, information-rich 'artifact' capturing the significant moment in our living history where technology innovation transformed everything, really fast. While slow by today's pace, this was the Big Bang of the technology-transformed world most of us live in today. Preserving, exploring, and extending this piece of our collective human history is the goal of the Softalk Apple Project.
