This didn t just happen br br In b Life Inc b award winning writer documentary filmmaker and scholar Douglas Rushkoff traces how corporations went from being convenient legal fictions to being the dominant fact of contemporary life Indeed as Rushkoff shows most Americans have so willingly adopted the values of corporations that they re no longer even aware of it br br This fascinating journey from the late Middle Ages to today reveals the roots of our debacle From the founding of the first chartered monopoly to the branding of the self from the invention of central currency to the privatization of banking from the birth of the modern self interested individual to his exploitation through the false ideal of the single family home from the Victorian Great Exhibition to the solipsism of MySpace the corporation has infiltrated all aspects of our daily lives Life Inc i i exposes why we see our homes as investments rather than places to live our k plans as the ultimate measure of success and the Internet as just another place to do business br br Most of all b Life Inc b shows how the current financial crisis is actually an opportunity to reverse this six hundred year old trend and to begin to create invest and transact directly rather than outsource all this activity to institutions that exist solely for their own sakes br br Corporatism didn t evolve naturally The landscape on which we are living the operating system on which we are now running our social software was invented by people sold to us as a better way of life supported by myths and ultimately allowed to develop into a self sustaining reality It is a map that has replaced the territory br br Rushkoff i i illuminates both how we ve become disconnected from our world and how we can reconnect to our towns to the value we can create and mostly to one another As the speculative economy collapses under its own weight Life Inc shows us how to build a real and human scaled society to take its place, i A darkly comic contemporary fable a brave very funny very knowing trip through the neo psychedelic substrate of the wired world i b William Gibson b bestselling author of b Neuromancer b and b Idoru b Douglas Rushkoff the foremost authority on cyberculture and author of b Cyberia Media Virus b and b Playing the Future b has penned the ultimate novel for our fast and furious times A wired in thrill ride into the here and now of tripping raving net surfing and beyond br br i An eerie tale of somethings caught up in an increasingly trippy world of homegrown religion Set in an abandoned piano factory in Oakland CA Rushkoff s novel drops several characters hackster hipster hustler hippie into a pop culture Cuisinart along with a nice Jewish boy and then spins them off into an intricate plot that leads to a showdown with the leader of a rival cultlike group i b New York Times b, No description available, The debate over whether the Net is good or bad for us fills the airwaves and the blogosphere But for all the heat of claim and counter claim the argument is essentially beside the point it s here it s everywhere The real question is do we direct technology or do we let ourselves be directed by it and those who have mastered it Choose the former writes Rushkoff and you gain access to the control panel of civilization Choose the latter and it could be the last real choice you get to make In ten chapters composed of ten commands accompanied by original illustrations from comic artist Leland Purvis Rushkoff provides cyberenthusiasts and technophobes alike with the guidelines to navigate this new universe br br In this spirited accessible poetics of new media Rushkoff picks up where Marshall McLuhan left off helping readers come to recognize programming as the new literacy of the digital age and as a template through which to see beyond social conventions and power structures that have vexed us for centuries This is a friendly little book with a big and actionable message br br World renowned media theorist and counterculture figure Douglas Rushkoff is the originator of ideas such as viral media social currency and screenagers He has been at the forefront of digital society from its beginning correctly predicting the rise of the net the dotcom boom and bust as well as the current financial crisis He is a familiar voice on NPR face on PBS and writer in publications from Discover Magazine to the New York Times br br Douglas Rushkoff is one of the great thinkers and writers of our time Timothy Leary br br Rushkoff is damn smart As someone who understood the digital revolution faster and better than almost anyone he shows how the internet is a social transformer that should change the way your business culture operates Walter Isaacson
