"An illustrated tour of Unix history


An illustrated tour of Unix history
Unix pioneer Rob Pike was there from the start, physically transporting key elements of the "Toronto distribution" of Unix to Berkeley when he started grad school, and then to Bell Labs, working alongside Dennis Ritchie and other key Unix programmers to develop and refine everything from modern editors to compilers to windowing systems.

" Cyberpunk: a 1990 documentary featuring William Gibson, Timothy Leary, and Brenda Laurel

CYBERPUNK is a 1990 documentary by Marianne Trench about the cyberpunk culture and it's aspects. It covers topics such as hacking, virtual reality, mind machines, implants, cyber arts, literature, music, and it features interviews with William Gibson, Dr. Timothy Leary and various other people like Joseph M. Rosen MD., Dr. Scott Fisher, Michael Synergy and more. This copy was downloaded from archive.org and I highly recommend that you download it from there too because you will be able to watch it in it's natural 60fps form. Link - https://archive.org/details/cyberpunk... Unfortunately, I had to remove a snippet of Front 242's Headhunter video from the documentary because if I left it in there the documentary would be taken down. This documentary has been uploaded purely for the purpose of educating and entertaining. - CREDITS - An INTERCON Production Directed by Marianne Trench Produced by Peter von Brandenburg Script by Peter von Brandenburg Screenplay by Marianne Trench Music Director - D.S.
