Meet the creators of the Whole Earth Catalog and the community they inspired. This short preview of our video history of the Whole Earth culture covers 50 years of collective innovation in just 17 minutes (see link below for the full 35 minute version).
Whole Earth Flashbacks takes you on a dazzling journey through time, from the first Whole Earth Catalogs to the Co-Evolution Quarterly, the Whole Earth Review, the Hackers Conference, the Well, Burning Man and the 10,000 Year Clock, to name but a few.
These projects have one thing in common: they gave access to tools and ideas to help people bring their dreams to life -- and change the world together.
This video retrospective features many creative minds and thought leaders: Stewart Brand, Jay Baldwin, Steven Levy, Andy Hertzfeld, Howard Rheingold, Larry Harvey and Danny Hillis, in order of appearance.
Whole Earth Flashbacks was created by Fabrice Florin, with the help of over 60 community members, who are listed in the credits below. Our video premiered at the 50th Anniversary of the Whole Earth Catalog on October 13, 2018, at Fort Mason in San Francisco.
Many thanks to Stewart Brand, Ryan Phelan, Danica Remy, the Point Foundation and all the amazing volunteers who organized this event and made this community creation possible!
This is an open-source documentary, which we hope will keep evolving over time, so that it may inspire people to take action for the next 10,000 years!
