Anti-Drugs Vaccines For Kids?

Just got passed this one from the Center for Cognitive Liberties and Ethics. Frightening? In brief, yesterday The Independent issued a story: “Children to get jabs against drug addiction”: http://news.independent.co.uk/uk/crime/story.jsp?story=544439stating, among other things: “A radical scheme to vaccinate children against future drug addiction is being considered by ministers, The Independent on Sunday can reveal.” “Under […]   read more »

Omega in alpha

I’m doing a workshop of some kind at the Omega Institute in a few weeks, along with Howard Bloom, Paul Laffoley, Richard Metzger, and Grant Morrison, all under the general Disinformation umbrella. The description on the Omega site explains that the weekend “offers us a rare chance to interact with a disparate, yet thematically cohesive […]   read more »

Two New Interviews

Two great new interviews with me have gone up in the last week. I think they both cover some new ground. Madghoul.com “…I do believe that those who can see – those who are willing to see what’s going on in this world, and feel obligated to do something about it – they are outcasts. […]   read more »

Their art, complete with site logos and characteristic fonts, is quite good – good enough to fool many users. And so is their url spoofing, which usually has ebay.com or […]   read more »

Interviews

I’ve been doing lots of interviews, lately. Two or three per day, mostly by email. And about all sorts of different things. Here’s an excerpt from one that just got posted, about Club Zero-G, at Newsrama. How did Rushkoff return to comics, like so many lapsed readers before him? “A friend from San Francisco told […]   read more »

It’s not the music

I’ve been on the road – playing keyboards with PsychicTV and shooting additional interviews for my Frontline documentary. We played two gigs this weekend, one in DC and the other in Pittsburgh. Nothing against DC whatsoever, but the gigs were like night and day. Surprisingly, though DC was a super-professional venue called the 9:30 Club, […]   read more »

The Neil Postman Award

I’m just back from the Media Ecology Association’s fifth convention, where I delivered what was, for me, a daring keynote challenging media ecologists to claim ‘money’ as a medium. Media Ecologists believe that there’s no such thing as a value-neutral medium. TV, the Internet, and even cell phones each have various propensities and biases because […]   read more »
