New York City: Raindance, 1970. The first two issues of "Radical Software" magazine. Second printing of Issue One, with the issue number on the front wrapper and a history of the printings on the rear. Issue Two is a first printing, with a separate questionnaire soliciting feedback from the reader laid in.
Early and influential journal from the very beginnings of the independent video and video art movements, with a focus on how information was edited, disseminated, and controlled, and the use of emerging home recording technologies to free television and video from corporate control. Published by the Raindance Foundation, a self-described "alternate culture think-tank" that focused on the intersection of cybernetics, media, and ecology, and the use of video as an alternative method of communication. Eleven issues of "Radical Software" were published between 1970 and 1974.
