Options The Media Squat with Douglas Rushkoff: Playlist from August 10, 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.

Welcome to the media squat

I'm hoping to get an interview with George Akerlof and/or Robert Shiller they are the authors of "Animal Spirits" (ISBN 978-0-691-142330-3 myself. :-)
  Mon. 8/10/09 6:10pm Charles-A.:

They deal with the current financial melt down by dealing with what actually HAPPENED rather than what the theories say should have happened.
  Mon. 8/10/09 6:17pm Charles-A.:

This is a great segment of "Real People doing real things."

Lonny Grafman was a great guest.

  Mon. 8/10/09 6:27pm rushkoff:

it bites, actually. I will continue begging for something better.
  Mon. 8/10/09 6:28pm Charles-A.:

Radical,. complete and immediate change.

That happens. Sometimes when you don't want it to.
  Mon. 8/10/09 6:29pm Charles-A:

Lets pray the commenting system is one of those things.
  Mon. 8/10/09 6:35pm Charles-A.:

The worse part is that the insurance companies use the same methodology when figuring out the cost of health care. Are you going to die before they actually have to pay for anything.
  Mon. 8/10/09 6:38pm Charles-A.:

There are "holding facilities" in all of the buildings which are "open to the public" by DESIGN.
  Mon. 8/10/09 6:41pm Charles-A.:

The Rodeo stadium at the Calgary Stampede has one of course. Every enclosed hockey rink in Canada has one. Every basketball ball court has one. (MSG has one of course.)
  Mon. 8/10/09 6:45pm Charles-A.:

Man, I'd hate to have to tell a bunch of construction workers that they got "PUNKED"
  Mon. 8/10/09 6:47pm Janine:

speaking of corporations, If you have HBO you can watch Yes Men Fix the World right now (on demand)
These guys are genius.
  Mon. 8/10/09 6:49pm Charles-A.:

Isn't it sad that being a decent human being will cost you in the market place.
  Mon. 8/10/09 6:57pm Janine:

Great point about imagery and conversation.
  Mon. 8/10/09 6:58pm Charles-A.:

Creaing conversations is the role and the "raison d'etre" of the new media.
