Options The Media Squat with Douglas Rushkoff: Playlist from October 12, 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. 10/12/09 6:07pm Charles-A.:

Mc Luhan, my hero. :-)
  Mon. 10/12/09 6:08pm Charles-A.:

McLuhan is ultimately a "1:N 'Savant"'
  Mon. 10/12/09 6:10pm Charles-A.:

McLuhan was prescient, but only up to a point.
  Mon. 10/12/09 6:11pm Charles-A.:

McLuhan was rather like John Ralston Saul.
  Mon. 10/12/09 6:14pm Charles-A.:

John Ralston Saul, who wrote "Voltaire's Bastards" was another major intellectual at the time.
  Mon. 10/12/09 6:21pm Charles-A.:

Both were incredibly opaque. (I would refer you to the post-phenemonologist writers A. Kroker & D. Cook - The Postmodern Scene. Excremental Culture and Hyper-Aesthetics)
  Mon. 10/12/09 6:23pm Charles-A.:

That's why McLuhan wrote "The Electric Bride" though "The Electronic Bride" would have been more correct.
  Mon. 10/12/09 6:25pm Charles-A.:

Old masters fetch a god price, unlike old mistresses. :-)
  Mon. 10/12/09 6:28pm Charles-A.:

The word, as captured in writing, is a poor thing when compared to the post-McLuhan media uses.
  Mon. 10/12/09 6:30pm Charles-A.:

Governance as something other than an aleatory, personal reality is a recent production.
  Mon. 10/12/09 6:33pm Charles-A.:

Television is still a 1:N medium. YOUR input is NOT required for its production.
  Mon. 10/12/09 6:37pm Charles-A.:

Visual media fundamentally consume enormous streams of data. The problem is that these "hot" media fundamentally non-participatory.
  Mon. 10/12/09 6:38pm Charles-A.:

Oops, that 'cool" medium.
  Mon. 10/12/09 6:38pm mr.x:

television is the reason for our downfall
  Mon. 10/12/09 6:40pm Charles-A.:

Television is ultimate 1:N medium. All that data but no information and no contribution from you whatsoever
  Mon. 10/12/09 6:41pm Charles-A.:

Hello mr.x "qué passa"
  Mon. 10/12/09 6:46pm Charles-A.:

YouTube when allied with ProSumer video cameras, is the ultimate N:M "sensory medium.'
  Mon. 10/12/09 6:48pm Charles-A.:

The next revolution in Google will be matching of images to descriptions of those images.
  Mon. 10/12/09 6:51pm Charles-A.:

Typography is a development of writing as it evolves to re-capture pre-literate exressionism.
  Mon. 10/12/09 6:57pm Charles-A.:

The argument of the uses of media is immaterial to the existence of the media themselves.
  Mon. 10/12/09 7:00pm Charles-A.:

We will never re-invent McLuhan
