@deejoe My baselines also include:

"Computer Lib / Dream Machines" by Ted Nelson (1974)
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Computer

Project Gutenberg (as an example, document number one from 1971)
gutenberg.org/cache/epub/1/pg1

Given the last year in particular, I want to add: Those are not the whole picture. Software freedom is relevant particularly for computer mediated communication, which is a good part of why I emphasize it here. It's why I'm on this federation instead of spending time in silos.

Another newer baseline component for me is:

yourfaveisproblematic.tumblr.c

which is to say, people who have done important things described in my first set of links are ... fallible. And I recognize that.
