2600: The Hacker Digest - Volume 2 by 2600 Magazine

Volume 2 of The Hacker Digest brings you back to the early days of
2600 Magazine. A lot was happening back in 1985, as the magazine
entered its second year. There were more subjects covered as the readership grew, letters to the editor started to pour in, and the magazine itself
expanded in size by a third. The idea of running a computer bulletin board
in affiliation with 2600 came to fruition early in the year and, by the middle
of the year, it had been seized by the authorities, propelling 2600 and hackers
into the headlines once more. Meanwhile, the technological revolution
continued, and 2600 led the way with articles on all aspects of the rapidly
evolving telecommunications industry, as well as all kinds of computer
operating systems that were not yet within reach of most people. Any company
or institution that had the nerve to hook a computer of any sort to the phone
lines could well find themselves thoroughly analyzed and critiqued in the pages
of 2600. The format continued to be that of a monthly newsletter: three sheets
of paper with loose-leaf holes punched in them for the convenience of readers.
Here, it's reformatted into an actual book, complete with explanations of the
covers and various other features. Every character has been proofread (typos
have been preserved) and many of the articles have stood the test of time and
are quite applicable today. Most every telephone number printed, however,
has likely changed.
