The Whole Earth
Fri, Aug 15, 2014 Keynote from Fred Turner
From Counterculture to Cyberculture. Fred Turner.
How the ideas of the anti-authoritarian Hippie movement, which proved so difficult to realize in the commune movement, were transferred to computer networks and their virtual communities; on the founding myths of Silicon Valley, neo-liberalism, and the roots of a network utopia in the Californian counter-culture and the Whole Earth Catalogue.
Fred Turner is associate professor of communication and director of the Science, Technology and Society Program, Stanford University.
