Options The Media Squat with Douglas Rushkoff: Playlist from June 15, 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.

Hi Douglas,
You should have Grant Morrison on, if you can get him. Also, I know you are on this book tour and this book is central in your mind and all, but I'd love to hear you talk about some of the other topics you've written on, such as Judaism. I'd love to hear some conversation on what kind of group skills, and social skills we'd have to learn to be able to work in bottom up groups. I feel as if we are fairly illiterate in those areas, making group work very difficult.
  4:55pm Brian Oregon:

The inherently social (as opposed to individual/selfish) nature of human being is reflected in the central role of language in our individual and group lives. Humans could not live without language.
  4:39pm Brian Oregon:

Corporations are a very efficient way to consolidate the power of the powerful -- on a practical level power is grouped and then entrusted to handlers that use the power to increase the power/profits of the investors (that is the people with the power). Are there things that would never have developed unless we adopted a system of corporate-enhanced power? Probably, but it's not an answerable question at this point, so it's kind of dumb for people to get hung up on it. We are where are. All we can do is move forward, hopefully in ways based on democracy rather than on the interests of concentrated power.
  4:45pm Brian Oregon:

Here's a strange but true thought: the product of television (the thing it produces in order to make money) is viewers.
  4:59pm Brian Oregon:

The citation of biological evolution to justify social (including economic) practices is evil. Any one who does this should be put on the list for tar and feathering.
  5:04pm Brian Oregon:

Out here in ranch land Oregon, people will actually say out loud that they aren't concerned about "all that global warming stuff" because God is in control. That these people are "conservatives" from the Modern Superpower tells us something very important about how modern imperialism works...
  11:00pm Ouro:

I must say I cannot agree with Jody's "pick and choose" mentality. This is the typical consumerist approach to spirituality. Let's take a quote from Kant, Sapere Aude! (Have the courage to use your own reason.)
