Options The Media Squat with Douglas Rushkoff: Playlist from October 19, 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.

Hello and welcome to the Media Squat.
I'm Charles-A and I love it here.
Now lets hear what Mr. Rushkoff has to say.
  Mon. 10/19/09 6:16pm Charles-A.:

R. Buckminster Fuller was a genius. And he's still hard to listen to.
  Mon. 10/19/09 6:19pm Charles-A.:

He would be delighted in the communication capabilities of internet.
  Mon. 10/19/09 6:21pm Charles-A.:

Fuller was all about dealing with plenty, not with scarecity.
  Mon. 10/19/09 6:23pm Charles-A.:

His dymaxion maps are works of genius as well.
  Mon. 10/19/09 6:26pm Charles-A.:

Livingry as opposed to weaponry is the kind of thought process he brought.
  Mon. 10/19/09 6:29pm Charles-A.:

1978 predated the web by about 5 years.
  Mon. 10/19/09 6:31pm Charles-A.:

That the invention of the web, not its first use with came about in 1993.

Ignorance is the weapon of scarcity. It will make you do anything because you don't know any better, and there is much better to know....
  Mon. 10/19/09 6:53pm Charles-A.:

Wealth is NOT money. That's going to make some revolutions. Right Douglas...
  Mon. 10/19/09 6:57pm Charles-A.:

I hope you enjoyed it.

I love R. Buckminster Fuller.
