Ok Computer

Paleo-technology through the computer magazines

Welcome to the late seventies, when we start to see women actually using the new technology in the home, or in their careers. However, mostly it was still in secretarial positions, where women were on the front lines of data entry, but still under the thumbs of a male workforce. As with any other business, the “sex sells” approach was used to sell products. Thus, we have computer magazines featuring ladies in a not-so-technical and business-like position. Perhaps the greatest examples of hot women featured on computer magazine covers come to us from Računari, a computer magazine of the former Yugoslavia.

Despite the passing of the years, anyway, the combination of woman and computer, or video game, doesn’t seem to have misplaced its potential, as well as that sweet ’70s, ’80s or ’90s kind of vibe. But maybe it’s all about childish nostalgia.
