Options The Media Squat with Douglas Rushkoff: Playlist from August 17, 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.

  6:01pm Charle-A:

Welcome to "The Media Squat"
  6:05pm Charles-A:

Corporations all fall into the same sump.
  6:08pm charles-A:

When the debate turns to the media's coverage, they've already won.
  6:10pm seang:

Under the paving-stones, the beach!
  6:13pm Charles-A.:

The problem is that if THEY win, doing anything means YOU win.
  6:18pm Charles-A.:

I ask for my sponsors to just mention me. That's their sponsorship and I mention them on my show.

I'm currently up to butt in PR on my own new book. (And no I'm not going to give the title. Its not the right place to do so.)
  6:20pm Charles-A.:

PR is not inherently bad, but it can lead one down the garden path.
  6:24pm Charles-A.:

I still remember Leni Riefensthal and the absolutely wonderful, and so wrong message, "The Olympiad" or even "Das Triumph der Willen" which chronicled the rise of the Nazi party.
  6:27pm Charles-A.:

PR is one step away from propaganda (which is a Jesuit term for " religious education.")
  6:32pm Charles-A.:

Forgiveness is truly an Aristocratic ideal. "Noblesse Oblige" is a pre-economic ideal. And its been a game played between the bourgeoisies and the nobility ever since.
  6:35pm Charles-A.:

The commons were just that "the commons"
  6:38pm Charles-A.:

Globalization is based on the old slave trade.
  6:45pm Charles-A.:

I have the book "Crystalizing Public Opinion". Great book.
  6:51pm Charles-A.:

But people with ANY name are screwed, blued and tattooed now in the Islamic world. The view of the Taliban is to dance about on our graves.
  6:53pm Charles-A.:

I think the worst intolerance is a prerogative of religious people.
  6:55pm Charles-A.:

Universal health-care should be a covenant between people and their civilization.
  7:00pm Charles-A.:

People need to stop wasting their lives and wasting their time being force fed crap and thinking that it means something.
