History of the Third Wave Study Group and cy.Rev

cy.Rev comes out of the 3rd Wave Study Group initiated by Carl Davidson in 1992. Its name derives from the first book we read, The Third Wave by Alvin Toffler. This book started us off looking at the world with new eyes. We have been attempting to update traditional Marxist and revolutionary thought based on the changes taking place in the world especially those that are dependent on or a result of the information technology explosion such as globalization and the crisis in the labor movement, as well as issues that have never fit comfortably into a left perspective such as environmentalism and the latest advances in scientific thought (those that challenge classical reductionist views).

Here is a picture of our Study Group (from September 27, 1999). In the front row (left to right) is: Rael Bassan, Tom Ard, Jerry Harris (cy.Rev editorial board), Ivan Handler (cy.Rev editorial board) and Gordie Schiff. In the back row is Fereidon Dadrass, Rado Mijanovich, Carl Davidson (editor and founder of cy.Rev) and Anita Malinski (cy.Rev production coordinator).

Beginning in the summer of 1994, the Third Wave Study Group released Issue 1 of "cyRev: A Journal of Cybernetic Revolution, Sustainable Socialism, and Radical Democracy." Six more print issues followed, and by the winter of 2004, cyRev was totally electronic. Here in the archive you will find all the articles from issues one through eight, plus more recent articles and editorials on issues such as globalization, technology and ethics, economics, labor, and much, much more. We hope you find the articles informative, as well as helpful in your own search for knowledge. We welcome any feedback you might have.
