        Subject: N American source for historical commentary on computing?

I would be most grateful for recommendations of specifically North 
American periodicals and journals that for the period 1945-1990 would be 
likely to yield commentary on computing. Intelligent, insightful 
commentary is of course desirable, but I am also very much interested in 
the full range of how people in Canada and the U.S. were thinking as 
they saw computing rise in prominence and influence. Silly reactions can 
in some contexts be as valuable as ones we would at the time tended most to respect.

Many thanks.
