The Hidden VPRO: Doug Rushkoff

VPRO is one of the few Dutch public broadcasters making in depth documentaries and investigative items in the public interest. Most people don't know that there are often English versions of the montages put up on YouTube. Because they are not publicized at all, no-one knows this resource is there. Which is a real shame, because some of these insights are very interesting indeed. Exactly what a public broadcaster should be doing for discussions in society.

I've been a fan of Douglas Rushkoff for many years, since he wrote a book called Media Virus. He was also a  guest earlier this year on This Week in Tech's indepth interview programme Triangulation.
