Favoriting The Media Squat with Douglas Rushkoff: Playlist from July 27, 2009 Favoriting

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.

You NEVER leave school, NEVER stop learning

Charles-A.:

Its not about technology, its about USING the technology.

10,000 hours is the difference between a neophyte and somebody who you trust.
  6:25pm
Charles-A.:

10,000 hours is about 1,000 days at 10 hours a day.
1,000 days is about 3 years 4 months.

If people don't spend the time that obsessively, (10 hours a day,) they don't get that good.

Would you want to be operated on by a slacker?
  6:30pm
Charles-A.:

Given that it takes four year to get a college degree, and that they don't spend the time studying any subject obsessively, you realize that a college education is an absolute minimum.
  6:34pm
Charles-A.:

Innovation is a process of taking everything you know and putting it in perspective. Then you KNOW you should never have thought of school as over.
  6:50pm
Charles-A.:

The scientific method is a modality of thought.
