Changing Selves

I did an interview on Changesurfer radio this weekend – mostly about my book Open Source Democracy, but ultimately about the changing nature of the individual in the face of emerging networks and community.

As I explained it on the air, it all comes down to the way we define “self.” In the past – since the renaissance, really, we’ve defined “self” in terms of the boundaries we experience differentiating us from others. As we move forward self becomes defined by our connections with others.

That’s the fun part of doing interviews – you come up with new ideas, and sometimes you even agree with them!
