Options The Media Squat with Douglas Rushkoff: Playlist from June 1, 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.

Don't forget the LIFE INC. book party at Comfort in Hastings-on-Hudson, NY, on June 7!

Comfort is home of the "Comfort Dollar" as discussed on previous episodes of this show.

Yes. Hastings-on=Hudson is just a short train ride away folks. :-)

The economy is the eight hundred pound gorilla in the room. Sadly, it wrecking even Hasting-on-Hudson...

I guess it depends on what you're talking about with whom...

All talk is subversive and DANGEROUS (If you're in power [but KNOW you don't deserve to be... :-])

Good luck on the book tour, Douglas. I'm putting a review in the rural alt paper I edit in far western NY state.
