Dear Stewart:

What a treat to see Tim O’Reilly’s retweet of your Tweet!
“Rigid ideologies distort our view of reality…and value too little love, humility, and kindness.” -Stewart Brand, editor/publisher, Whole Earth Catalog. My first response was, “Yes, T.H.E. # 1 Brand lives!” My second response: “Classic Brand!”

Dear Stewart,

Email is so unreliable these days, I have taken to posting my notes then tweeting and re-sending my email with that link.

I suspect my notes to you are caught in some kind of filter, so
please allow me now to point the way to that July 9, 2016 email here: (that’s this page)

If you are just too busy with life, certainly I understand, yet
I believe a “Whole Universe Catalog” could be your greatest achievement!


Tweet to Stewart: (also on Saturday, 23 September 2016)
@stewartbrand “The Whole Universe Catalog” in just over 200 pages! It would change the world and save the universe.
