Douglas Rushkoff - on This Week in Tech TV

Doug is definitely back in my books of must read authors, putting social media into a modern context. Why do we install all these interruption apps with alerts etc? It's like living in a permanent crisis or being locked in a television newsroom.

I saw Doug live for the first time in the 1990's when he came to Rotterdam to present a talk connected with his book Media Virus. But lately I thought his material had gone off the boil. But this is good, sharp commentary on the here and now.
