Slate magazine has reprinted the "Secrets of the Little Blue Box" article from 1971 which inspired Steve Jobs. The same Ron Rosenbaum now writing for Slate was the author of the 1971 esquire article, which can be found via Secrets of The Little Blue Box - The History of Phone Phreaking Blog where Phil Lapsley has a quality scan of the original.

It's still amazing to read about the original phreaking community and how technical knowledge spread before the worldwideweb.
