“Computer Lib” Book Cover, 1st Edition


"By the early 1970s, the Whole Earth Catalog had had a particular impact in high-technology circles. In the San Francisco Area, members of the Homebrew Computing Club (including Lois Brand) helped found the People's Computer Company, an irregular, informal guide to using computers as tools for personal and social transformation. Another programmer, Theodor Nelson, turned to the Catalog as a model for his own compendium of countercultural computing lore, Computer Lib."— Geoff Kaplan, Power to the People, p 149
