Fred Turner on Cyber Pre-history

Via the DIY Media Weblog comes a link to a video of Fred Turner that is of interest to those of us interested in the history of online interaction and how that history can help us be more effective today.
"DIY media today is a hybrid of the social group formation capabilities of the Internet, which were manifested two decades ago as virtual communities, the production capabilities of affordable digital audiovideo tools, and the broadband distribution capabilities of the Web. That cyber-prehistory context is the subject of this video of Fred Turner's talk at Harvard's Berkman center on his new book, From Cyberculture to Counterculture: Stewart brand, The Whole Earth Network, and The Rise of Digital Utopianism"
