Stewart Brand is quite well known (at least in the US) for the Whole Earth Catalog (1968-1985), and the Co-Evolution Quarterly, both of which were close to being the bibles for a substantial counter-culture and "think globally, act locally" movement within North America. He is president and cofounder of the Long Now Foundation. His most recent book is "Whole Earth Discipline: An Ecopragmatist Manifesto". I suspect that this most recent book offended a great number of true believers of all stripes (in other words I thought it was quite good at examining a number of important thorny issues).
