I've had the same uncanny experience last summer when I read them all. My dad collected them since day 1 until the final one where he discusses "electronic photography."

The interesting thing for me was to read them after having encountered APUG and the other photo forums. So much of what is discussed and argued here and on other forums has its equivalent in Picker's newsletter. Reading the newsletter was like reading a part of the latent content of APUG's collective mind.

There are also interesting historical tidbits, like a letter from a then "young and upcoming photographer" called Brooks Jensen...
