Abstract (English)

"Radical Software would provide a platform for the exploration of alternatives to the dominant mass media structure, and would do so in a manner that mixed the subjective style of the new journalism with the non-precious, self-published format of the Whole Earth Catalog. Readers would be encouraged to copy anything and disseminate it as they saw fit. Radical Software would not present itself self-consciously as an art magazine, but rather as a form of social activism and environmental sculpture. It would be a forum, a video craft how-to-magazine for the fearless, a rudimentary marketing and distribution system for the burgeoning community, and a journal of philosophical speculation and political opinion for all who shared their vision." -- Publisher's website.
