Computer Lib

Nine years after it was published, I was reading Steven Levy’s Hackers, and was first introduced to Ted Nelson‘s book. Being that I felt more affinity with the 1970s hardware hacking/free speech hackers than any other era of hacking history, I tried to find a copy without success until September, 1989 when I was on a cross-country trip across the US, and stopped at The Whole Earth Store in Berkeley, California. I would heartily recommend stopping there, but alas it closed down some time ago.

This was a top-shelf book in the hacking library for many years. I don’t recall if I loaned out my copy to never have it return, or it went missing during a move over the decades.
