Biweekly Report, September 16, 1960. D. O'Brien details the amplifier 31 issues. J. Cudmore details the progress with the 1201. J. Sheahan details the progress of the Burst Generator 2303. A. Campbell details the progress with the crystal clocks. Gordon Bell, who had started at DIGITAL that June, demonstrates his full immersion in efforts to market the PDP-1 to appropriate customers and to provide programs and documentation for the machine. His comparison of the PDP-1 to the Volkswagen beetle is apt: the low-cost, high-performance PDP-1 redefined the computer as an affordable and accessible tool instead of as one available only to big business, big government and big science. The library has acquired new books. H. Van Cleef details the documentation progress of the Model 1514 memory tester. J. Fadiman details the progress of the wiring diagrams for the Memory Exerciser 2202. E. Harwood details the progress of the PDP-1B. R. Hughes details the progress on circuits and transistors.
