Options The Media Squat with Douglas Rushkoff: Playlist from July 6, 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 Charles-A.:

Hello and welcome to the Media Squat
  6:08pm Charles-A.:

Technical issues right row. Sorry for the wait. Enjoy the Ramones
  6:10pm Charles-A:

Its on!(Problems over.)
  6:14pm Charles-A.:

Repeal the law of gravity...
  6:16pm Charles-A,:

Ahh law of Traction (That's At traction, dumpkofp.)
  6:24pm Charles-A:

Where are you? ... In 2012.
  6:26pm Charles-A.:

Guy Vantresca is the featured guest
  6:29pm Brian Oregon:

For better or worse, the future of the human species depends on the demise of the Euroamerican-centered world system as it's currently constituted.
  6:39pm Brian Oregon:

The thing that seems to matter is how to craft an existence outside the reach of elites -- i.e., communities in control of their food, energy, and land, as well as the defense of those. In relation to would-be elites and bullies, what is ultimately needed is the attitude, "Better to die on yr feet than live on yr knees."
  6:41pm Charles-A.:

As its currently constituted, its pretty much dead.

But we have to watch what will be left in the ashes.
  6:44pm Charles-A.:

As for dying on your feet, I know plenty of people who would would be only too happy to oblige you.

I'd rather stay well away from those people.
  6:47pm Brian Oregon:

C-A -- I'm not talking about picking fights, but about making the taking of my things (food, land, autonomy) very costly to anyone who tries.
  6:52pm Brian Oregon:

Of course there are people working against a 'democratic' economy. Whether or not they are the direct cultural descendants of the Knights Templar does not seem particularly important.
  6:55pm Brian Oregon:

The magic we need to worry about is the workings of the federal reserve bank
  6:56pm Scotty:

  6:58pm Charles-A.:

The problems come when we try to scale up and end up eating burgers that taste and have all the nutritional value of cheap cardboard.
  6:58pm german_media_science:

hey douglas, your methodology is obscuring the power instead of "deconstructing" it. do you really think that subversion of the subversion is perverting the ideology?
