Meet the creators of the Whole Earth Catalog and the community they inspired.
This half-hour video 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, Wired, Burning Man and the 10,000 Year Clock.
Whole Earth Flashbacks features thought leaders like Stewart Brand, J. Baldwin, Lloyd Kahn, Ted Nelson, Howard Rheingold, Wavy Gravy, Kevin Kelly and Danny Hillis, to name but a few. These folks have one thing in common: they have all given access to tools and ideas, to help people bring their dreams to life -- and change the world.
This retrospective was produced and directed by Fabrice Florin, with the help of over 60 community members, who are listed in the credits below. Many thanks to our video crew: Ahmed Kabil, David Lawrence, James McKee, Matisse Enzer, Robert Horvitz, Susan Ryan, Mark Petrakis and Phyllis Florin. Kudos as well 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!

Whole Earth Flashbacks is an open-source documentary, which we hope will keep evolving over time, so that it may inspire more people to take action in the next 10,000 years!
