Stewart Brand on the Whole Earth Catalog’s Long Legacy over 50 years
 
01:42:04
Fifty years ago the Whole Earth Catalog burst onto the cultural scene and helped set in motion waves of innovation that reverberated through the San Francisco Bay Area and the rest of America – and that continue to this day. The one-and-only Stewart Brand was the creative force behind that unique media publication and cultural phenomenon and we’re honored that he spoke about the Whole Earth’s intellectual and entrepreneurial legacy at the June 2018 gathering of What’s Now: San Francisco.

1960s Rebels: Stewart Brand - Tech Visionary
 
07:20
The late 1960s saw progressive ideas emanate from the countercultural underground and revolutionise society. Challenging oppressive, outdated norms and expectations, a small number of individuals brought about far-reaching changes as they sought to attain a better world. Their idealism and actions helped mobilise a movement which continues to inspire modern activists and shape how we live today. Stewart Brand was involved in a number of the key revolutionary events of the late 1960s: he co-founded the Trips Festival of 1966, one of the first large-scale hippy gatherings; founded and edited the Whole Earth Catalog, widely considered the pre-cursor to the internet for its user-generated content and knowledge-sharing; and he filmed the ‘Mother of All Demos’ in 1968, where Douglas Englebart presented the first word processing, computer mouse, hyperlinks and video conferencing. Since then, Brand has co-founded the world's first open virtual community, the WELL, in 1984 and the Long Now Foundation in 1996, which aims to encourage long-term thinking to prompt more responsible human action.

Steve Job's Google of the 60s: Whole Earth Catalog revisited (+ homestead tour of a former editor)
 
16:34
Steve Jobs called The Whole Earth Catalog "one of the bibles of my generation". He went on to explain in his Stanford commencement speech in 2005, "It was sort of like Google in paperback form, 35 years before Google came along: it was idealistic, and overflowing with neat tools and great notions". The Whole Earth Catalog was a kind of "unofficial handbook of the counterculture". It was, pre-Internet, a way for anyone anywhere to tap into a global economy. Founder and editor Stewart Brand set out to create a catalog- like the then-very-practical-and-universal catalog L.L. Bean- that would showcase all of the great tools of the world to help anyone do things for themselves or learn about big ideas. Lloyd Kahn was the Shelter editor of the catalog. Kahn, an insurance broker-turned-builder, leveraged his experience with Whole Earth and began to publish his own books. First, he wrote very popular books on dome building. Kahn had become "the spokesman for the counterculture on domes" (his dome home even appeared in Life Magazine), but he took the books out of print when he decided the building style just wasn't practical and "I didn't want any more domes on my kharma". In 1974 Kahn took down his dome and replaced it with a more traditional handmade home. "Built stud-frame house using recycled lumber, doors, windows," he writes in his 2004 book Home Work, "Relief somehow to discover old ways can work best." Today, Lloyd and his wife Lesley Creed run their own homestead in Bolinas, California where they tend an extensive organic garden and bantam chickens, grind their own wheat, make their own sourdough, spin their own wool, and continue to build their own structures (most recently, a chicken coop with a living roof).

From Counterculture to Cyberculture: The Legacy of the Whole Earth Catalog
 
01:46:56
Stanford University Libraries presents a Symposium celebrating the legacy of the Whole Earth Catalog featuring: Stewart Brand, founder of the Whole Earth Catalog and co-chairman of the Long Now Foundation 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 Howard Rheingold, author of The Virtual Community: Homesteading on the Electronic Frontier and Smart Mobs: The Next Social Revolution Fred Turner, moderator and assistant professor of communication, Stanford University, author of From Counterculture to Cyberculture: Stewart Brand, the Whole Earth Catalog, and the Rise of Digital Utopianism With an introduction by Henry Lowood, Curator for Germanic & History of Science Collections, Stanford University Libraries. The panelists will illuminate the extraordinary impact of the Whole Earth Catalog and the American counterculture on contemporary computing and everyday life. The event celebrates the library's one-of-a-kind collection of Whole Earth Papers. In the fall of 1968, Stewart Brand published a 61-page miscellany of hand tools, books, and other gear. A generation of long-hairs was heading “back to the land” and Brand aimed to give them the tools they’d need to get there. While most rural communes soon failed, the ideals and the social networks Brand and his colleagues built up around the Catalog would last a lifetime. Over the next forty years, they transformed American notions of technology and particularly, of computers. They shaped the defining notions of our digital world, including “personal” computing, virtual community, and the vision of cyberspace as an electronic frontier. They helped give rise to such influential venues as the Whole Earth ‘Lectronic Link (or WELL) and Wired magazine. And in the process, they transformed the ideals of the generation of 1968 into a deeply optimistic vision of the social potential of digital technologies. Stanford University Libraries

Whole Earth Catalog, 1971 production in Saline Valley, CA
 
23:32
This is about 20 minutes of super 8 film that Stewart Brand shot in the winter of 1971. It documents the production of the January 1971 "Difficult But Possible Supplement" to The Whole Earth Catalog. Supplements were 60-page long magazine-like periodicals that appeared seasonally between the many-year cycle of the book-like Catalogs. This films shows (briefly near the end) the simple tools used to make the catalogs: paper, wax, an IBM Selectric typewriter, and a Polaroid reproduction camera. There were 6 staff from Whole Earth, and 2 from Ant Farm, an art collective. Ant Farm built the structures. The camp was centered around a beautiful wild hot spring. 70 miles to the nearest phone. They erected a dome in the desert and then battled the winds while trying to erect an inflatable structure. It was Burning Man 40 years ago. The wind came up and blew away the production inflatable (bounding across the desert), and they had to move production of the Catalog into the Airstream that Stewart and his wife Lois lived in. Ant Farm lived in their little dome (seen trucking from one site to another). I asked Stewart why they went to the desert to produce a magazine? "Why did we do it? My excuse was to prove that production could be anywhere---an early Maker impulse I suppose. The real reason was the pure joy of doing something difficult but possible in the desert. The whole story of the making of the Supplement was printed in the Supplement." -- KK Stewart adds a commentary (in case his comments disappear): Sequence of events: random shot of Seal Rocks, San Francisco; a "New Game" I may have designed involving blindfolds; the hot springs in Saline Valley, 70 miles from the nearest telephone; burying the generator that would power the blowers for the inflatable production office and its equipment; grinding in the augurs that would hold the inflatable down; smoothing a pad for the inflatable; cooking lunch by the hot spring; Ant Farm's geodesic dome engulfing a truck for moving to a different site; rolling out the inflatable (I'm in some shots); the inflatable inflating; the Airstream trailer I lived in in those days with my then-wife Lois; snow on the mountains (it was January); inside the inflatable setting up production furniture and gear; building a geodesic darkroom for photo work; beginning production, page layout, typesetting, etc; wind shaking everything; Barbara DeZonia's side boob; pulling the loose canopy out of wind trouble; my truck anchoring one corner of the inflatable; production resumes in the Airstream; cavorting on top of the transparent inflatable; making photo halftones in the darkroom; visit from a small plane; then back to Menlo Park home base, where an airplane was being built; many dark frames. Cast: Hal Hershey, Barbara and Bud DeZonia, Fred Richardson, Stewart and Lois Brand; from Ant Farm: Andy Shapiro, Joe Hall, Curtis Schreier.

The Updated Last Whole Earth Catalog

This is the last update to the last Whole Earth Catalog. There won't be another! But where will we get things in the future if there are no more Whole Earth Catalogs? Where do YOU get things? Song: Things you need and things you don't, The Whole Earth Catalogue. Close your eyes and open your mind and you will find. Thing that you can use to shape the future. Utopia rising. The Whole Earth Catalog was a counterculture magazine and product catalog published by Stewart Brand several times a year between 1968 and 1972. The editorial focus was on self-sufficiency, ecology, alternative education, "do it yourself" (DIY), and holism, and featured the slogan "access to tools". While WEC listed and reviewed a wide range of products (clothing, books, tools, machines, seeds, etc.), it did not sell any of the products directly. Instead, the vendor's contact information was listed alongside the item and its review. Creatures of Yes is a weekly puppet show (new videos every Friday!) about positivity and inclusivity made by Jacob Graham and Co in Brooklyn NY. The show is also a time travel experiment. We only use cameras and other technologies from the 1970s and earlier.

Hungry & Foolish: Marketing visionario di Stewart Brand

Stay hungry. Stay foolish. Di solito questo motto viene considerato come il testamento esistenziale di Steve Jobs. Mentre lo stesso Steve Jobs tiene molto a ricordarci che lui l’ha raccolta, quando era adolescente, da Stewart Brand e dalla sua pubblicazione di grande successo commerciale intitolata: The Whole Earth Catalog. Studiare questa storia, in tutti i suoi profondi riflessi, ci aiuta a capire molto sulla costruzione di internet, sul marketing di Apple e su tanti aspetti del passaggio di testimone tra l'utopia del '68 e l'epopea visionaria-commerciale del web.

The Complicated Legacy of Stewart Brand’s “Whole Earth Catalog”
 
17:47
In the fall of 1968, the Portola Institute, an education nonprofit in Menlo Park, California, published the first edition of the “Whole Earth Catalog”: a compendium of product listings, how-to diagrams, and educational ephemera intended for communards and other participants in the back-to-the-land movement. The catalogue’s founder, Stewart Brand––a photographer, writer, former army lieutenant, impresario, and consummate networker––had spent part of the summer driving a pickup truck to intentional communities in Colorado and New Mexico and selling camping equipment, books, tools, and supplies to the residents. Brand returned to the Portola Institute (a gathering place and incubator of sorts for computer researchers, academics, career engineers, hobbyists, and members of the counterculture), hired a teen-age artist to handle layout, and began production on the catalogue’s first edition. At the height of the civil-rights movement and the war in Vietnam, the “Whole Earth Catalog” offered a vision for a new social order—one that eschewed institutions in favor of individual empowerment, achieved through the acquisition of skills and tools. The latter category included agricultural equipment, weaving kits, mechanical devices, books like “Kibbutz: Venture in Utopia,” and digital technologies and related theoretical texts, such as Norbert Wiener’s “Cybernetics” and the Hewlett-Packard 9100A, a programmable calculator. “We are as gods and might as well get used to it” read the first catalogue’s statement of purpose. “A realm of intimate, personal power is developing—power of the individual to conduct his own education, find his own inspiration, shape his own environment, and share his adventure with whoever is interested.” The communes eventually collapsed, for the usual reasons, which included poor resource management, factionalism, and financial limitations. But the “Whole Earth Catalog,” which published quarterly through 1971 and sporadically thereafter, garnered a cult following that included founders of Airbnb and Stripe and also early employees of Facebook. Brand went on to work as a journalist, documenting the burgeoning hacker culture, and co-founded a small galaxy of publications and companies. Among them were CoEvolution Quarterly, a journal focussed on environmentalism; the “Whole Earth Software Catalog,” a digitally oriented update to the original; the Hackers Conference; the WELL, one of the earliest online communities; and a corporate-consulting outfit, the Global Business Network, that emphasized scenario-planning with a dash of optimistic futurism. Brand doesn’t have much to do with the current startup ecosystem, but younger entrepreneurs regularly reach out to him, perhaps in search of a sense of continuity or simply out of curiosity about the industry’s origins. The spirit of the catalogue—its irreverence toward institutions, its emphasis on autodidacticism, and its sunny view of computers as tools for personal liberation––appeals to a y

Stewart Brand, an icon of the environmental movement, outlines a provocative approach for reclaiming our planet. In his latest book, Brand proposes solutions for three profound transformations which are underway right now: climate change, urbanization and biotechnology. In 1966 he campaigned to have NASA release the then-rumored satellite image of the entire Earth as seen from space. He founded the CoEvolution Quarterly in 1974 which became The Whole Earth Catalog - the bible of the 70's "back to the land" movement. In CoEvolution Quarterly #4, he published a transcription of technology historian Lewis Mumford?s talk ?The Next Transformation of Man,? containing the statement: "... man has still within him sufficient resources to alter the direction of modern civilization, for we then need no longer regard man as the passive victim of his own irreversible technological development." Brand is one of the founders of the WELL with Larry Brilliant, the Global Business Network and the Long Now Foundation. He lives on a houseboat with his wife, Ryan Phelan, in Sausalito harbor.

01:01:36
Webcast sponsored by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre. Hosted by UBC Reads Sustainability Lecture Series, and held at the Liu Institute of Global Issues, Steward Brand has been an environmentalist for over 40 years, and shares his wisdom in his new book, Whole Earth Discipline: An Ecopragmatist Manifesto. His book is a compilation of his reflections and lessons which suggest a shift in the environmentalists' dogmatic approach, and describes a process of reasonable debate and experimentation. His iconoclastic proposals include transitioning to nuclear energy and ecosystem engineering, and are sure to provoke widespread debate. He has helped define the collaborative, data-sharing, forward-thinking world in which we live. Brand is the founder of the Whole Earth Catalog, the Global Business Network, the Long Now Foundation and the Well.

01:55
Complete video at: http://fora.tv/2010/02/01/Long-Term_Thinking_in_the_Next_10000_Years Why are there so many histories of architecture, but none of real estate? Futurist Stewart Brand discusses the central role that land has played throughout human civilization. ----- Long Finance is an initiative begun in 2007 to establish a World Centre Of Thinking On Long-Term Finance. The initiative began with a question - ­"When would we know our financial system is working?" - which challenges a system that can't provide today's 20-year-olds with a reliable financial retirement structure. The aim of the Long Finance Institute is "to improve society's understanding and use of finance over the long-term." The research project proposals range from theory versus practice or fiscal versus monetary to sustainability versus robustness. The iconic project for Long Finance is the Eternal Coin, with the objective of starting a global debate about society's values over the long-term. This is the second event that Gresham College has co-hosted, where learning from the sister Long Now organization and its 10,000 Year Clock Project. - Gresham College Stewart Brand is a co-founder and managing director of Global Business Network, founded and runs the GBN Book Club, and is the president of The Long Now Foundation. Brand is well known for founding, editing and publishing the Whole Earth Catalog (01968-85), which received a National Book Award for the 01972 issue. In 01984, he founded The WELL (Whole Earth 'Lectronic Link), a computer teleconference system for the San Francisco Bay Area. It now has 11,000 active users worldwide and is considered a bellwether of the genre.
