Dear list moderator,

The University of Chicago Press has just released Fred Turner's book
>From Counterculture to Cyberculture: Stewart Brand, the Whole Earth
Network, and the Rise of Digital Utopianism. Turner explores the
transformation of the cultural meaning of computer and network
technology--from technologies of dehumanization and centralized
bureaucracy to instruments of personal transformation and social
revolution. Central to his story are a few influential San Francisco
Bay-area entrepreneurs: Stewart Brand and the Whole Earth network.

We have two excerpts from Turner's  book on our website.  You can read
the introduction and an excerpt about the Whole Earth Catalog and the
emerging digital culture.

Introduction: http://www.press.uchicago.edu/Misc/Chicago/817415.html
Chapter 4 excerpt:

Fred suggested we contact you about these excerpts. I hope you will find
them of interest and perhaps something you can post to the AIR-L list or
other venues where they will find a readership.

Thanks much.
