Washington Times & Insight on the News

Washington Times & Insight on the News (Wayzata Technology) is an example of a CD-ROM as a database; the disc features the Times from January 1992 through June 1995, plus Insight on the News, a magazine that is really an extended editorial-and-letters page. The text is presented DOS-style, without frills. There’s a search function that is of limited use, considering the breadth of most articles – you’re as likely to find a tangential reference to your subject as you are to find the subject itself. What else is there to say? The disc is three years of a newspaper; the audience is fairly limited.

– March 1996
