Options The Media Squat with Douglas Rushkoff: Playlist from September 7, 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.

  Mon. 9/7/09 6:05pm Charles-A.:

Oh, thank heavens. I was wondering about the phones.
  Mon. 9/7/09 6:07pm rushkoff:

Tough interview. Hard to get them to say what the heck it is.
  Mon. 9/7/09 6:08pm Charles-A.:

That's an interesting ship.
  Mon. 9/7/09 6:09pm Charles-A.:

I can see why she wanted them to describe it.
  Mon. 9/7/09 6:10pm Charles-A.:

Its actually quite a whole environment on shipboard. It sounds great..
  Mon. 9/7/09 6:13pm Charles-A.:

It sounds a lot worse than a "Three Hour Tour".

I spent a week on a house boat in England (drowning staning up!)
  Mon. 9/7/09 6:14pm annie:

is there a photo of this craft?
  Mon. 9/7/09 6:16pm Charles-A.:

It was 40 feet by 10 feet. (Bigger than most NY apartments :-)

I would LOVE to do that again on the Hudson.
  Mon. 9/7/09 6:19pm Charles-A.:

The activist elements (chickens are real things, not McNuggets,) must be fun.
  Mon. 9/7/09 6:21pm Charles-A.:

The problem is that, while it would scale, I would not want it to become too big.
  Mon. 9/7/09 6:25pm Charles-A.:

Who am I to talk.\?

Buckminster Fuller had a design for a floating tetrahedral structure on the East river.

It was a mile high and would accommodate 8 million souls.
  Mon. 9/7/09 6:27pm Charles-A.:

Imagine what she could do with Twitter? :-)
  Mon. 9/7/09 6:30pm Charles-A.:

Its a reflection of the 1:N contamination of the N:M nature of social media.
  Mon. 9/7/09 6:35pm Charles-A.:

It should be simple.
  Mon. 9/7/09 6:39pm Charles-A.:

I'm on MySpace, I'm not on FaceBook. I am on msbpodcast.com because that is where I want to interface with people about MS and Disability.
  Mon. 9/7/09 6:42pm Charles-A.:

Wow, heavy topic.
  Mon. 9/7/09 6:45pm Charles-A.:

Who else but the rich could afford it?
  Mon. 9/7/09 6:46pm Charles-A.:

Its 1:N thinking again in an N:M world.
  Mon. 9/7/09 6:49pm Charles-A.:

Pedigree tells a lot, but its not all good.
  Mon. 9/7/09 6:52pm Charles-A.:

I like her. I could have used someone like Danah Boyd in Montréal in the sixties and seventies
  Mon. 9/7/09 6:56pm Charles-A.:

120 characters but what characters...
  Mon. 9/7/09 6:58pm Charles-A.:

Its a great show. It will end too soon, in two minutes.
  Mon. 9/7/09 6:59pm Charles-A.:

It not ACADEMIA, its academe.
  Mon. 9/7/09 7:00pm Charles-A.:
