21.c Great Australian ’90s Cyberculture Magazine Returns

Image Courtesy of: cargocollective.com21.cwas an astoundingly intelligent and literate ’90s "cyberculture" magazine out of Australia that didn’t receive enough attention and distribution over here in the US. With writing from Rudy Rucker, Bruce Sterling, Kathy Acker, Erik Davis, Mark Dery, and myself and great interviews with the likes of J.G. Ballard, William S. Burroughs, Vernor Vinge and many others,  21.c ignored the techno-newsy elements that were found in Wired and even in Mondo 2000 and went straight for the jugular using intellectual explorations of accelerating culture to examine and evoke what William Gibson’ once called the "exhilarating and terrifying vertigo" of contemporary and future life.

Now they’re back at it with new online content, as well as selected items from their archives. I wish them a long new life.
