"Software is an exhibition which utilizes sophisticated communication technology, but concentrates on the interaction between people and their electronic and electromechanical surroundings." -- from foreword. Similar to other important exhibitions of the period that merged technology and art, such as "Information" at The Museum of Modern Art, "Conceptual Art and Conceptual Aspects" at the New York Cultural Center, and "Art & Technology" held at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, "Software" was the foremost show of its kind and included an early appearence of Nicholas Negroponte - who would later go on to help found Wired Magazine twenty-three years later.
