Product details

  • From Counterculture to Cyberculture explores the extraordinary and ironic transformation of computers, from tools of the military to collaborative machines that could herald a future digital utopia
  • The author 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 collaboration 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
