Lib/Dream Machines Retrospective
This astonishingly prescient book originally written and published by by Theodor H. Nelson in 1974 in a glorious oversized format is one of the "tap roots" of the soon to be born microcomputer and "cyber" cultures.
pages provide a retrospecitve of this work and Ted's current projects
and vision. We will present excerpts from the 1975 (second?) edition,
kindly provided to us by Dan Croghan.
Ted has kindly granted us permission to scan and reproduce Computer Lib/Dream Machines (thanks Ted!) in a selective and serialized fashion, as certain topics come up. We begin this process by reproducing a farseeing section on picture processing and ASCII art from page 10 of Dream Machines.
