New On the Web: "MIT Technology Review Publishes Digital Back Issues to 1969"

From an Alexis Madrigal Article on TheAtlantic.com:

MIT’s Technology Review has published all their back issues to 1969 as PDFs. If you’re a subscriber you get full access to the archive. Plebes get all the wonderful covers — and a 10-page preview.

It looks like HP sponsored the digitization, which makes me wonder why all magazines don’t cut similar deals. With the price of scanning having fallen as the size of online audiences have grown, I wonder if we’ll see a golden age of digitization of long-running magazines now.
