ABSTRACT
The author's tenure as an editorial advisor to <it>Datamation</it> magazine from 1965 to 1971 paralleled an era of computer technology journalism that chronicled and set the tone for the industry's emergence as a dominant force in business and society. Some of the flavor of this period is captured in this account of the author's interaction with legendary editor Bob Forest.
