Contributions invited for Retrocomputing News
« on: April 17, 2012, 19:01:40 PM »
Hi everyone,

A new FREE online retrocomputing magazine aimed at providing news, reviews, reports and features for a wide readership is being launched soon!

Retrocomputing News will be primarily, but not exclusively, focused on the UK retrocomputing scene, but news etc from across the globe will still be very welcome if it's likely to be of interest to readers.

Retrocomputing News is already on Facebook and a series of guidelines for potential contributors have been published there today.

If anyone on here is interested in contributing, please check out our Facebook page and get in touch!

See: http://on.fb.me/II4iQA

Cheers,

Stuart Williams
