Before Hope, Technomanifestos
Before Hope, Technomanifestos.
Many years ago, graphic design artist Shepard Fairey, recipient of much fame and infamy for his Obama “Hope” poster, created the cover for my pseudonymous book, TECHNOMANIFESTOS: Visions of the Information Revolutionaries. We were thrilled that Fairey agreed to do the cover because his vision jibed so well with some of the themes in the book: the transformative nature of technology, the liberation of information and knowledge, the dismantling of the old hierarchies and bureaucracies.
Now, at last, there’s hope that Obama will match the manifesto.
