The Whole Earth Catalog

wholeearthcatalogcover2

The Whole Earth Catalog was a cultural phenomena – Founder Stewart Brand, in his 1968 CATALOG article wrote –

Standing with one foot firmly in the rugged individualism and back-to-the-land movements of the Sixties counterculture and the other in the nascent global community made possible by the Internet, the WHOLE EARTH CATALOG offered an integrated, complex, challenging, thought-provoking, and comprehensive worldview.

It’s content is mind bendingly good, with alot of books like the first How Things Work (just bought ’68 off t’interweb) getting exposure on it. The catalog’s contained up to date publication’s that, before the internet, was feared by The Left and Sneered at by the New Age for their technicalogical proclaimations and freedom of exchange in ideas and information. Apparantly.
