I recently read a post from Peter Skillen about valuing the contributions of pioneers in edtech. Following up on a Facebook thread that inspired the post, I found this reference to the Logo Exchange archives. It was basically typed text on paper, mailed out to subscribers once a month for the first ten years and quarterly thereafter. It was based on a programming language called Logo, which as Wikipedia summarizes was "widely known for its use of turtle graphics, in which commands for movement and drawing produced line or vector graphics, either on screen or with a small robot termed a turtle" (imagine if we used small turtles today instead of arrows for cursors!).
