Options The Media Squat with Douglas Rushkoff: Playlist from May 4, 2009 Options

The Media Squat is freeform, bottom-up, open source radio looking towards similarly open source, bottom-up solutions to some of the problems engendered by our relentlessly top-down society.

Each show will initiate a series of discussions, which will themselves comprise part of an expanding wiki of resources, support material, and community-generated content.

This isn't pure '60s or Whole Earth radicalism and self-sufficiency (though it's certainly related) but a 21st Century, cyberpunk reclamation of all technologies and social contracts as essentially open source, up for discussion, and open to modification. It's an application of the hacker ethic and net collectivism to everything, done in the spirit of fun and adventure.

Ongoing forums with host, guests, and listeners take place at http://www.mediasquat.net.

Modern Americans don't seem to understand that huge complex systems are LESS SECURE than local, more face to face ones. Corporations have bled away the idea that we can do things for ourselves.
  Mon. 5/4/09 7:25pm postmanpaul:

brian, i agree, and politicians are guilty too.
  Mon. 5/4/09 7:29pm Brian Oregon:

Good point pmp -- it's really the whole plutocratic/centralized power/capital sector of society that depends for its power on our "need" for them.
  Mon. 5/4/09 7:30pm Charles:

Whew. Man I'm typing my butt off. But it's all good. Love the comment thread. We ARE less secure.
  Mon. 5/4/09 7:31pm Brian Oregon:

Biodeisel is one great path away from corporate control.
  Mon. 5/4/09 7:35pm postmanpaul:

Deisel originally designed his engines to run off plant generated fuel!
