    Wow! That’s completely new to me. I guess you could call it the story of how the Whole Earth Catalog got it’s name. Used to love skimming the pages in those things.

    stewart brand was tripping on some mean acid. he realised that the image of the earth was always the same. so he asked, ‘why haven’t we seen a photograph of the whole earth yet?’ that image finally made it to the cover of the whole earth catalogue


  8. Stewart Brand started in 1966 a campaign[1] to urge NASA to release a photograph of the Earth[2] as a whole which NASA was rumoured to be in possession of.
    In 1968, he began publishing a catalog and decided to name it after his earlier campaign and thus it came to be called the Whole Earth Catalog[3].

    Whole Earth Catalog

    In 1966, Stewart Brand campaigned to have NASA release the then-rumored satellite image of the entire Earth as seen from space. He distributed buttons—for 25 cents each—asking, “Why haven’t we seen a photograph of the whole Earth yet?” He thought the image of our planet might be a powerful symbol.

    In 1968, a NASA astronaut made the photo and in 1970 Earth Day began to be celebrated.

    Stewart Brand sent across buttons that displayed the question “Why haven’t we seen a photograph of the whole Earth yet?!”. He thought the image of our planet might be a powerful symbol. In 1968, a NASA astronaut made the photo and in 1970 Earth Day began to be celebrated.

    Stewart Brand asked the question in 1 – Why haven’t we seen a photograph of the whole earth yet? NASA finally relented and gave the photo for Brand’s book – Whole Earth Catalog.

    In early 1966, LSD veteran and Acid Tests choreographer Stewart Brand was sitting on the roof of his apartment building in North Beach .. when it occurred to him that no photographs of the entire earth had been published by NASA although the agency had been shooting people into space since 1962.

    From that musing, Brand launched a campaign that was picked up by major newspapers. NASA relented with the launch of the Apollo 8 mission in 1968 and the image appeared on the cover of the first edition of Brand’s Whole Earth Catalog later that year.

    Stewart Brand is an American writer, best known as editor of the Whole Earth Catalog….

    In 1966, he campaigned to have NASA release the then-rumored satellite image of the entire Earth as seen from space. He distributed buttons—for 25 cents each asking, “Why haven’t we seen a photograph of the whole Earth yet?” He thought the image of our planet might be a powerful symbol. In 1968, a NASA astronaut made the photo and in 1970 Earth Day began to be celebrated. During a 2003 interview, Brand explained that the image “gave the sense that Earth’s an island, surrounded by a lot of inhospitable space. And it’s so graphic, this little blue, white, green and brown jewel-like icon amongst a quite featureless black vacuum.” During this campaign Brand met Richard Buckminster Fuller, who offered to help him in his projects…

    Whole Earth Catalog – Steve Jobs’ favorite childhood rag. Named so after founder Stewart Brand’s plea to NASA to release a then unreleased satellite image of the whole earth from outer space. Third pic is an actual cover of a WEC.

    Shamelessly copy-pasting from wp

    The title Whole Earth Catalog came from a previous project of Stewart Brand. In 1966, he initiated a public campaign to have NASA release the then-rumored satellite photo of the sphere of Earth as seen from space, the first image of the “Whole Earth.”

    Stewart Brand’s button (top) was created before the 1968 picture of the earth from space (middle), which with his Whole Earth Catalog (bottom) helped spark the modern environmental movement.


  22. Why haven’t we seen a photograph of the whole earth yet?

    Whole Earth Catalog.

    Stewart Brand came up with the badges asking why there were no Whole Earth images taken so far. The image then came from the Apollo 17 crew in 1972 and it was duly used by Brand as the cover for his Whole Earth Catalog.
