Bespoke Details in Borg Like Me

BLM_ProductShot_Frontb

Dear friend and distinguished author Gareth Branwyn just released his crowd-funded, self-published book Borg Like Me. More about the book:

Borg Like Me is a comprehensive collection of cyberculture pioneer Gareth Branwyn’s best work, covering everything from his youth in a hippie commune to his involvement in the 90s zine publishing scene, to his tenure at influential cyber arts and culture mags Mondo 2000, bOING bOING, and Wired, and his eight years with MAKE, spearheading the growing maker movement. Previously published material is woven throughout with Branwyn’s painfully honest commentary and personal stories, and there are also many original pieces. The book is beautifully illustrated with over thirty drawings, photos, and other artworks, from such talented artists as Shannon Wheeler, John Bergin, (Academy Award-winning) Stéphane Halleux, Danny Hellman, Terri Weifenbach, Mark Frauenfelder, Lea Redmond, Greg Brotherton, and Jeremy Mayer.

Borg Like Me is a smart, passionate, intense trip along the bleeding edges of the art, technology, and culture at the turn of the 21st century.

With every copy of the book ordered through Gareth’s site, you’ll also get an autographed letterpress bookplate designed by Gareth’s son Blake Maloof, bookmarks with art from the book, and an artfully stamped mailer.

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter

  1. Thanks so much for this, Becky, et al. I appreciate the exposure.

    To get to know more about me and the wide range of subjects covered in my book, Adafruits may be interested in this Reddit AMA I did last week:
