Douglas Rushkoff's offering of "Radical Abundance: How We Get Past "Free"
Thanks for the tweet, Pete. This is doubley brilliant.
If you're reading this, you're looking at a computer screen, and therefore what is offered here is relevant to you.
Douglas Rushkoff's offering of "Radical Abundance: How We Get Past "Free" (at the Web 2.0 Expo NY 09), lifts the lid on a whole lot of assumptions. Here is a vision that acknowledges the history we have been living through, before launching into a picture we have probably all imagined a version of at some time. This remarkable talk, offers an abundance of clarity and perception - and in just 15 minutes!
"...the next big thing (if there is a big thing, it's a lot of small things actually), but the people who make the next big amount of money, are the people who create genuine, alternative, electronic currencies and means of peer to peer exchange that do not involve cash. Cash is artificially scarce, cash has been taken away, its out of the system, cash has lost its utility value, as it's been sucked out into investment capital onto the speculative marketplace."
Tomorrow's post will offer some views about our current legal system, and the common law that exists prior to contract and corporate law.
