For half a century, Stewart Brand has demonstrated a gift for prescience. He rode with Ken Kesey’s Merry Pranksters when most Americans had never heard of hippies, ran the cameras at the first public display of modern computer text editing and graphics in 1968, and helped inspire Earth Day as an early environmental activist. But Brand is chiefly famous for creating the most important guidebook and self-help aid for the hippie generation, the Whole Earth Catalog. From our October issue, Senior Editor Brian Doherty talks libertarianism, the environment, and the future with this freewheeling visionary.
