What is The WELL?

Welcome to a gathering that's like no other.

The WELL, launched back in 1985 as the Whole Earth 'Lectronic Link, continues to provide a cherished watering hole for articulate and playful thinkers from all walks of life.

Why is this conversation so treasured? Why did members of this community pull together to buy the service?

bubble iconEllen Ullman, Life in Code

Join author Ellen Ullman as she discusses her book Life In Code: A Personal History of Technology, which traces Ullman's experiences in the emerging technology culture from 1994 to 2017. Ullman worked as a programmer and software engineer for over twenty years and her memoir, Close to the Machine, about her life as a software engineer during the Internet's first rise, has been called "the most human book to have emerged thus far from the culture of Silicon Valley."
This topic is open to all - you don't have to be a WELL member to read and participate. Come join the conversation!

Much, much more to talk about...
