who were those utopian dreamers?

in the early nineties, in the sf east bay, a group used to leave free newspapers around about the approaching cyber utopia.
Maybe they had a commune, they definitely wanted the reader to come join them. I remember washy green ink on cheap newsprint, and hand drawn pictures of long haired people at computer keyboards and exploding cornucopia brain fireworks as transcendent consciousness expanded from man machine symbiosis.
I also think they ran programming courses.
what was that all about?

who were they?
what happened to them?
did you join?
are they still there?
I've been trying to dredge up a name, and I keep thinking 'acorn' but i don't think that was it.
I never saw any mention of zen-master-rama
, so I've always thought it wasn't them.
were they a renegade outpost of special circumstances?
