The Arming of Desire: Counterculture and Computer Revolution.
Lecture by Lee Felsentstein
Lee Felsenstein - sysadmin of the pioneering wide-area network Community Memory, contractor for Processor Technology, hard-working moderator of the Homebrew Computer Club, and designer of the Pennywhistle modem and the Osborne One - has lived a life constantly interwoven with the history and philosophy of computing. Through it all he's pursued Ivan Illich's ideal of ”conviviality,” insisting that technology attains its highest purpose only when it becomes understandable, approachable, repairable and usable by ordinary people.
