Media theorist and author of Life, Inc.: How the World Became a Corporation and How to Take it Back, Douglas Rushkoff, talked about his perceptions of the Occupy Wall Street protests recently to Alternet. Rushkoff, in an article on CNN, calls the protests the first 21st- century movement by explaining that in this age, there should be no winners or losers, only changed behaviors in a sustainable scenario.
Recently, he hosted a conference called ContactCon, which worked as a way to help build new programs and apps for the web to help solve-real world problems. The conference connected OWS activists to opportune services in the tech world and allowed them to build a social network to organize debt strikes. Rushkoff also talked about his comic, ADD, which debuted recently at NY’s Comic Con, explaining ADD as an adaptive strategy and “the kids who are living in that total saturation of entertainment culture end up being able to pierce the veil, end up being able to see through the marketing.”
