WFMU is pleased to welcome a new member of the freeform family, Douglas Rushkoff! Mr. Rushkoff's program, The Media Squat, can be heard live on our airwaves and webstreams every Monday at 7pm EDT, and streaming archives are available here.
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.
It 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.
If you're not familiar with Douglas Rushkoff's work, dive in by reading his excellent analysis of the economic downturn for a refreshing view.
