Title: From Counterculture to Cyberculture: Stewart
Brand, the Whole Earth Network, and the Rise of Digital Utopianism
Publisher: The University
of Chicago Press
Fred Turner traces the previously untold story of a highly influential
group of San Francisco Bay–area entrepreneurs: Stewart Brand and the
Whole Earth network. Between 1968 and 1998, Brand and his colleagues
brokered a long-running encounter between San Francisco flower power
and the emerging technological hub of Silicon Valley.
Thanks to their vision, counterculturalists and technologists alike
joined together to reimagine computers as tools for personal
liberation, the building of virtual and decidedly alternative
communities, and the exploration of bold new social frontiers.
