A comprehensive collection of cyberculture pioneer Gareth Branwyns best work, Borg Like Me spans a 30-year writing career. The book covers Branwyns coming of age in a commune, his involvement in the 90s zine publishing scene, his tenure at influential cyber arts and culture mags Mondo 2000, bOING bOING, Wired, and his eight years at MAKE, spearheading the growing maker movement. Previously published material is woven throughout with Branwyns unabashedly honest commentary, personal anecdotes, and original essays. Read about the smart-druggies behind Mondo 2000, impersonating Billy Idol in cyberspace (for Billy Idol), the making of the iconic early 90s hypermedia book, Beyond Cyberpunk!, and Branwyn going positively Phillip K. Dick after a heart attack and a bad blood transfusion. Borg Like Me is a smart, passionate, intense trip along the bleeding edges of art, technology, and culture at the turn of the 21st century.
