i If the end of the twentieth century can be characterized by futurism the twenty first can be defined by presentism i br This is the moment we ve been waiting for explains award winning media theorist Douglas Rushkoff but we don t seem to have any time in which to live it Instead we remain poised and frozen overwhelmed by an always on live streamed i reality i that our human bodies and minds can never truly inhabit And our failure to do so has had wide ranging effects on every aspect of our lives br People spent the twentieth century obsessed with the future We created technologies that would help connect us faster gather news map the planet compile knowledge and connect with anyone at anytime We strove for an instantaneous network where time and space could be compressed br Well the future s arrived We live in a continuous i now i enabled by Twitter email and a so called real time technological shift Yet this i now i is an elusive goal that we can never quite reach And the dissonance between our digital selves and our analog bodies has thrown us into a new state of anxiety i present shock i br Rushkoff weaves together seemingly disparate events and trends into a rich nuanced portrait of how life in the eternal present has affected our biology behavior politics and culture He explains how the rise of zombie apocalypse fiction signals our intense desire for an ending how the Tea Party and Occupy Wall Street form two sides of the same post narrative coin how corporate investing in the future has been replaced by futile efforts to game the stock market in real time why social networks make people anxious and email can feel like an assault He examines how the tragedy of disconnected an entire generation from a sense of history and delves into why conspiracy theories actually comfort us br As both individuals and communities we have a choice We can struggle through the onslaught of information and play an eternal game of catch up Or we can choose to live in the present favor eye contact over texting quality over speed and human quirks over digital perfection Rushkoff offers hope for anyone seeking to transcend the false now br Absorbing and thought provoking i Present Shock i is a wide ranging deeply thought meditation on what it means to be human in real time, Bold daring and provocative i Media Virus i examines the intricate ways in which popular media both manipulate and are manipulated by those who know how to tap into their power Douglas Rushkoff shows that where there s a wavelength there s a way to infect those on it from the subtly but intentionally subversive signals broadcast by shows like The Simpsons to the O J media frenzy surrounding the Nicole Brown Simpson murder case chase and trial What does it all mean Unless you ve been living in a cave that isn t cable ready you re already infected with the media virus But don t worry it won t make you sick It will make you think, From the imagination of best selling author Douglas Rushkoff one of the most iconoclastic and acclaimed minds of our era comes a graphic novel series that exposes the real Bible as it was actually written and reveals how its mythic tales are repeated today p Grad student Jake Stern leads an underground band of renegades that uses any means necessary to combat the frightening threats to freedom that permeate the world They employ technology alchemy media hacking and mysticism to fight a modern threat that has its roots in ancient stories destined to recur in the modern age p, This didn t just happen br br In b Life Inc b award winning writer documentary filmmaker and scholar Douglas Rushkoff traces how corporations went from being convenient legal fictions to being the dominant fact of contemporary life Indeed as Rushkoff shows most Americans have so willingly adopted the values of corporations that they re no longer even aware of it br br This fascinating journey from the late Middle Ages to today reveals the roots of our debacle From the founding of the first chartered monopoly to the branding of the self from the invention of central currency to the privatization of banking from the birth of the modern self interested individual to his exploitation through the false ideal of the single family home from the Victorian Great Exhibition to the solipsism of MySpace the corporation has infiltrated all aspects of our daily lives Life Inc i i exposes why we see our homes as investments rather than places to live our k plans as the ultimate measure of success and the Internet as just another place to do business br br Most of all b Life Inc b shows how the current financial crisis is actually an opportunity to reverse this six hundred year old trend and to begin to create invest and transact directly rather than outsource all this activity to institutions that exist solely for their own sakes br br Corporatism didn t evolve naturally The landscape on which we are living the operating system on which we are now running our social software was invented by people sold to us as a better way of life supported by myths and ultimately allowed to develop into a self sustaining reality It is a map that has replaced the territory br br Rushkoff i i illuminates both how we ve become disconnected from our world and how we can reconnect to our towns to the value we can create and mostly to one another As the speculative economy collapses under its own weight Life Inc shows us how to build a real and human scaled society to take its place
