I don't think those guys were trying to scam anyone, they were really into computers and software for the good of humanity,kind of odd hearing people talk like that these days but there was plenty of "we are in this together" type of stuff back in the 60's-70's.Man I really had no idea that computers would catch on with the 'commom folk" like they did. I can remember not owning my own TV until 1985 but you always could find someplace to watch MTV.

You're right that it is much less common in this age of "me first scramble greed" that people talk about "we're in this together" but I think it's a shame and what's more, incorrect thinking in that it is counter-productive. Collectively the decisions we make, the things that we do all add up to shape the world in which we have to live. It brings to mind the story of the island where explorers left a few rabbits who eventually consumed everything so that all starved to death..... or the Incas or the Mayans or the Dust Bowl in the US.

There are some interesting books written by Alvin Toffler regarding technology and especially the trauma of paradigm shifts such as from an Agricultural Society to an Industrial Society and now the transition we are in to an Information Society.

If you enjoyed Revolution OS you might enjoy his books since he really does have an epic sense of The Big Picture leading toward a homogenous, no-borders world... one in which each of us must discover how to survive and hopefully, thrive. It is not going to be gentle with old men stuck in old ways making laws about things of which they have no clue. Smooth sailing, brother.
