Radical Software. Number One. The Alternate Television Movement.
Korot, Beryl, Ed.; Gershuny, Phyllis, Ed.
Radical Software, n1 Summer 1970
Some innovative ideas and applications for new television technology are described in this tabloid format periodical. Most of these ideas support the periodical's contention that broadcast television is the most limited use of a developing television technology which has the capability of being a responsive medium and a valuable social tool and, as such, should be open to all. The articles in this issue detail experimental projects (both actual and proposed), provide hardware information and an index of television innovators and their ideas, list counter-culture videotapes and programs, and explore some esoteric uses possible for the medium. Sample articles include an interview with R. Buckminster Fuller, a proposal for a paperless society, a critique of cable television, and instructions on how to build an oscilloscope. (JY)
