>From Counterculture to Cyberculture: The Legacy of the Whole Earth Catalog

A symposium featuring Stewart Brand, Kevin Kelly, Howard Rheingold and
Fred Turner

Thursday, November 9 from 7:00 to 8:30 PM
Cubberly Auditorium, Stanford University
http://www.stanford.edu/~shyeo/wholeearth.htm

During the 1960s, student marchers chanted "Do not fold, spindle or
mutilate!" as they railed against computers and the Cold War-era
military industrial complex they seemed to represent. But within just
three decades,
computers had become emblems of countercultural revolution. This
symposium will feature a conversation with three people who played key
roles in that transformation: Stewart Brand, founder of the Whole Earth
Catalog, Kevin Kelly, former executive editor of Wired Magazine and
author of Out of Control: The Rise of Neo-Biological Civilization and
New Rules for the New Economy, and Howard Rheingold, author of The
Virtual Community: Homesteading on the Electronic Frontier and Smart
Mobs: The Next Social Revolution. The discussion will be moderated by
Fred Turner, assistant professor of communication at Stanford and author
of the new book From Counterculture to Cyberculture: Stewart Brand, the
Whole Earth Network and the Rise of Digital Utopianism.

This event is sponsored by the Stanford University Libraries, the
Department of Communication, and the American Studies Program.

It will be introduced by Henry Lowood, of the Stanford University
Libraries, and followed by a public reception.
