Kicking off with a chapter centered on the writings of Norbert Wiener, father of the theory of Cybernetics, the book is structured around the most well-known figures of the Information Revolution, their respective contributions and their visions of where it would all lead, as seen in their own writings. By no means, however, is it limited to just the movement's technical or computer-based aspects and thinkers. On the contrary, tied in throughout the shrewd exploration of the true significance of today's increased communication possibilities are such famous pop and counter-culture icons as Marshall McLuhan and Abbie Hoffman.
From the origins of digital thought to such modern issues as open source, "Technomanifestos" offers a chronological panorama of what the great minds behind the Information Revolution actually thought.
