Popular Science - One and a Third Centuries of It - Free

"Popular Science Puts Entire Scanned Archive Online, Free"
Gadget Lab, Wired (March 4, 2010)

"Gadget nerds: Prepare to lose the rest of your day to awesomeness. PopSci, the web-wing of Popular Science magazine, has scanned its entire 137-year archive and put it online for you to read, absolutely free. The archive, made available in partnership with Google Books, even has the original period advertisements...."

I must be a "gadget nerd." I grew up with Popular Science. Not as a subscriber - but I'd buy an issue now and again from a newsstand. Apparently the collection is searchable - but with limitations. There's a bit more detail in the (short) article.

I won't be going there tonight - or, probably, tomorrow. There's too much in my schedule, and if I started browsing, I'd probably stay too long.

There's a bit of advice from the article that I'll pass along: start in the issues from the fifties.

Actually, some of yesterday's news may be here. Or maybe last week's.
The software and science stuff might still be interesting, though. Or not.
