Are you interested in improving the regulation of television broadcasting?

Should cable TV and satellites be used to serve social needs as well as
commercial ones? What's going on in community video? Public access TV? How about
interactive TV in medicine? A video conference? TV in Russia? Reviews,
equipment, news. If these things pique your curiousity then maybe you should try
TeleVISIONS, a lively bi-monthly tabloid magazine now in its third year. $10 for
10 issues, sample issue $1.00.

Doomsday +  1 is a new comic book (you know, like Superman, Detective Comics or
Captain Marvel.) Are you kidding? Creative Computing recommending comics? Yes,
indeed. In case you didn't read Ron Anderson's article in Creative Vol. 1, No.

3, we should mention that cartoons and comics mirror the average person's
understanding of technology (and computers) very closely. Doomsday   1 is set in
the near future after a devastating nuclear war, but oh what the remaining
computers and robot androids can do! Take a look. 25c at your local newsstand or
$1.25 for the next six issues from Charlton Comics, Division St., Derby, CT



Ever since the plans for building your own computer, called the Mark-8, appeared
in Popular Electronics, hobbists using the Intel 8008 chip (and the later 8080)
have formed clubs and started newsletters to communicate with one another. The
Micro-8 Computer User Group Newsletter serves 300 plus members all over the U.S.

It's one of he best, print quality (vital for schematics) has improved
dramatically from the early issues, although you still have to comb every page
to find a specific item. $6.00 for 6 issues. Sample issue $1.00.

Micro-8 Computer User Group, Cabrillo Computer Center, 4350 Constellation Road,
Lompoc, CA 93436.




For businessmen, Fortune is practically required reading; for other people, ho
hum. However, the April 1975 "Special Bicentennial Issue: The American System"
should be required reading for everyone. An article by Max Ways discusses how
the System quickens and guides Americans toward higher goals and harder
challenges, but then how each triumph brings its swarm of troubles. Daniel Bell
discusses the danger of people demanding equality of result and not just
equality of opportunity, and speculates that these demands could well overload
our political system.  Two other articles examine our battered educational
system and scientific system. Can both regain their vitality of 20 years ago?
And at what cost? Another article discusses the new generation of young
Americans, their ethics, responsibility, and the fact that they expect more from
the System than any previous generation. This issue of Fortune deserves a place
in your personal "search for freedom and self-fulfillment" (J.F. Kennedy).
April 1975, $2.00.

Fortune, 541 North Fairbanks Court, Chicago, IL 60611.

terminals and Tektronix customer applications. Recent issues have included
