A Speach by Doug Rushkoff on Renaissance Prospects from the Pop!Tech2004 conference

2303I do believe this is perhaps one of my favorite speaches. I've recently been getting into Doug Rushkoff's writings, and checking out his PBS Frontline specials The Persuaders & Merchants of Cool, which I've recently posted about.

Douglas Rushkoff analyzes, writes and speaks about the way people, cultures, and institutions create, share, and influence each other's values. He sees "media" as the landscape where this interaction takes place, and "literacy" as the ability to participate consciously in it.
