The Office of Brion Gysin

Boing Boing’s David Pescovitz makes a great point with “Gysin was also a pioneer of sound poetry and multimedia collage that, in my mind, underpins remix culture, quick-cut video editing, and nonlinear Web experiences.”

He’s absolutely right. In fact, the concept of hypertext may have taken longer to appear had it not been for Gysin and other Beat artists’ influence on culture.
