Host Marcia Alvar speaks with Howard Rheingold, editor of The Millennium Whole Earth Catalog. They discuss the original Whole Earth Catalog, published over twenty five years ago by Stuart Brand, and compare and contrast the old version with the new. The main differences include the additions of sections on computers and personal technology. Mr. Rheingold, a self-proclaimed futurist, optimistically discusses how he thinks technology will effect society in the future and the evolution of a "virtual community."
