Options The Media Squat with Douglas Rushkoff: Playlist from June 22, 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.

I'm waiting for all the fans... :-)
  Mon. 6/22/09 6:14pm Ch-A.:

Anybody got an opinion of evolution (competition VS collaboration.)
  Mon. 6/22/09 6:27pm Ch-A.:

I'm too old. I almost remember Paul Otlet.
  Mon. 6/22/09 6:29pm Ch-A:

Fascinating guest
  Mon. 6/22/09 6:35pm Ch-A.:

In Montreal we put up with Maurice Podbrey's "cris de coeurs".
  Mon. 6/22/09 6:43pm Ch-A:

When does a culture become a cult?
  Mon. 6/22/09 6:47pm Janine:

If time is spending up, how are we so sure it's 2012? Maybe it's 3012...

Stimulating stuff. Some other links that may of interest...


I'm not aware of '2012' and its contents, but I'm a bit wary of the phrase: "expand your/our consciousness". It just seems a bit too vague...
  Mon. 6/22/09 6:51pm Janine:

But is it scalable? Most people laugh at 2012...how is this uniting people? I only see division.
  Mon. 6/22/09 6:59pm Staubgold:

Hmmm. I know wiki is not the be and end all in information, but the '2012' thing does have the air of an apocalyptic cult about it - we don't really need this kind of speculation to move "forward" or change do we?
