What you'll learn in this history lesson:

Hijacking Communication: How Visionary Artists of the 70's Imagined a Better Internet

In the late 1960s and early 1970s, as the United States Department of Defense tested early forms of digital communication and technologists at Stanford experimented with personal computing implements, radical video art collectives hijacked cable television channels and designed entire alternative information systems.

In doing so, these collectives imagined early versions of the Internet and other contemporary digital technologies which were as sophisticated and prescient as those of the scientists.

A look at these visionary proposals and projects sheds light on both the pre-history of the Internet and on the political and economic dynamics surrounding contemporary digital technologies.
