In Whole Earth Discipline, he combines his deep concern for the environment, his pugnacious search for windmills to tilt at, and his technological optimism to produce an intriguing, confounding, utterly Brand-type book. By that, I mean a full-throated assault on conventional wisdom, laced with enough ironic riffs and personal confessions of his own past errors to disarm most critics. Brand came to public attention 41 years ago by publishing the wildly successful Whole Earth Catalog, a practical guide for back-to-the-land refugees from suburbia.

The catalog questioned virtually every attribute of s middle-class suburban America and offered a telephone directory-sized, annotated compilation of equipment for rural self-reliance. Ultimately, the back-to-the-land movement proved to be vanishingly small, over-fond of drugs, and stuck in a historical cul-de-sac. In Whole Earth Discipline, Brand examines and embraces the scientific basis of some of the principal problems that scare the hell out of environmentalists.

In the '60s, there was no Internet; no cable channels. Basically, Brand invented the blogosphere long before there was any such thing as a blog. No topic was too esoteric, no degree of enthusiasm too ardent, no amateur expertise too uncertified to be included.

This I am sure about: it is no coincidence that the Whole Earth Catalogs disappeared as soon as the web and blogs arrived. Everything the Whole Earth Catalogs did, the web does better.

Early editions reflected the considerable influence of Fuller, particularly his teachings about " whole systems ," " synergetics ," and efficiency or reducing waste. By , Brand and his co-workers were already questioning whether Fuller's sense of direction might be too anthropocentric.

New information arising in fields like ecology and biospherics was persuasive. By the mids, much of the Buddhist economics viewpoint of E. Schumacher , as well as the activist interests of the biological species preservationists , had tempered the overall enthusiasm for Fuller's ideas in the catalog.

He had originally written that "a realm of intimate, personal power is developing"; regarding this as important in some respects to wit, the soon-emerging potentials of personal computing , Brand felt that the overarching project of humankind had more to do with living within natural systems, and this is something we do in common, interactively.And yet I still hesitated over whether to include this last quote on him.
