Douglas Rushkoff on the Future of Writing

LifeInc_1.jpg
This morning author Douglas Rushkoff joined mediabistro.com Morning Media Menu for an interview about Iran, media conglomeration, Twitter, and his new book, “Life Inc.: How the World Became a Corporation and How to Take It Back.”

You can listen to the whole show at BlogTalkRadio. New York readers can actually meet Rushkoff this evening at his open source book party co-hosted by SMITH magazine, WFMU and ARTHUR magazine.

Here’s a Rushkoff quote from the Morning Media Menu: “The Paris Hiltons of writing have for the last decade or so done a lot better than the writers of writing. It makes it very tempting to look at our own careers through that corporatist lens … through the external value you can create for some company, rather than the genuine value you can create for people who read what you’re writing.”
