Options The Media Squat with Douglas Rushkoff: Playlist from October 5, 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 the the Media Squat.
  6:02pm Charles-A.:

Sorry if I seen a little disorganized, I just got in from doing my own show ("The Disability Show") for WSPC. Now let's all listen to "The Media Squat."
  6:09pm Charles-A.:

That's actually a good definition for Fractal
  6:13pm Charles-A.:

A fractal is a self referential, self- replicating quasi-infinite scaling structure.
  6:14pm Charles-A.:

I didn't get squat (NOT the Media squat, :-) for my book.

At least its not costing me any more.
  6:17pm Charles-A.:

The problem with talking about books is that you can't discuss the book. I LOVE the Ian McEwan quote.
  6:18pm bill:

Hey Charles!
  6:19pm Charles-A.:

Having friends will get you through times of no money better than money will get you through time of no friends.
  6:20pm Charles-A.:

Hey bill. How are you?
  6:21pm Charles-A.:

Though I have to say that "Rich or poor, its nice to have money."
  6:24pm bill:

Great man, how are you? My first time in the chat room!
  6:24pm Charles-A.:

I think I have to teach Douglas about NeoMaps which would let me know where all of you are from. (I have an audience if MSers which has even reached into Ulan Bator. :-)
  6:25pm Charles-A.:

Welcome to your chat room. Its a kind of side conversation on what the program is about.
  6:27pm Charles-A.:

I love these kinds of one way trips into useless knowledge.
  6:30pm Charles-A.:

"Celtic vibe" Oh wow, kind of a Lucky Charms "hip hop"-ing swell jive.
  6:34pm Charles-A.:

Reality can be porous. (Then again you may find yourself in a Lovecraft-ian Chthulu ream. Be careful out there.)
  6:36pm Charles-A.:

Mondo 2000? Oh wow. Somebody get me a web reference to R.U.Serious...
  6:38pm Charles-A.:

My early 20s. (Kwel... :-) This electronic typewriter doesn't do cuneiform. :-)
  6:40pm Charles-A.:

My riffs are often based on a righteous wrath.
  6:41pm stingy d:

big jonathan lethem fan! i tuned in late, i'll go back and listen. i'm absolutly feel a twitter coming on.
  6:42pm stingy d:

am i at the wrong show?
  6:44pm stingy d:

is cuneiform emoji for old people?
  6:44pm Charles-A.:

I find they reality is a far more effective "spark in a dried field of grass" and can sear much deeper into your mind. (I like my ideas like my meat, Pitttsburg [, meaning burnt to a crisp on the outside and raw and bloody on the inside.] )
  6:46pm Charles-A.:

Cuneiform is made with the cut end of some reeds in clay tablets. :-)

That's real old.
  6:49pm Charles-A.:

The oldest writing in existence is the code of Hammurabi, which was a wage and price control document. (an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.)
  6:50pm stingy d:

yea i bet.
  6:51pm stingy d:

did anybody see the knicks first pre-season game?!!
  6:52pm Bill Clinton:

I like my meat like I like my ideas, in someone else's head.
  6:54pm Charles-A.:

Emoji (絵文字?) is the Japanese term for the picture characters or emoticons used in Japanese wireless messages and webpages. [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emoji ] :-) Cuneiform script (pronounced /kjuːˈniː.ɨfɔrm/ kew-NEE-i-form or /ˈkjuːnɨfɔrm/ KEW-ni-form) is the earliest known writing system in the world.[1] Cuneiform writing emerged in the Sumerian civilization of southern Iraq around the 34th century BC [2] during the middle Uruk period, beginning as a pictographic system of writing. Cuneiform was the most widespread and historically significant writing system in the Ancient Near East.[ same source ]
  6:54pm bill:

Thanksgiving's a great time for the munchies!
  6:56pm Charles-A.:

It depends on how they get in there. (Can you change somebody's mind bi hitting it with a brick?)
  6:56pm stingy d:

i might actually second thought my first thought.
  6:59pm Charles-A.:

The closing song it Melt by Flying Lotus.
