Cooperativism to Come – First talk about my upcoming book

I just attended a terrific conference on Platform Cooperativism, hosted by Trebor Scholz and Nathan Schneider. It was a great gathering of hundreds of activists, alternative economy folks, thinkers, and doers. I was quite humbled to be asked to deliver the closing keynote, which was essentially a first effort at expressing the gist of my upcoming book, Throwing Rocks at the Google Bus, in 40 minutes of speaking.

So here’s the video of that talk. It’s pretty high energy and fast-paced; I’m going to have to cut a lot of this material before I start doing my real talks about this book. But this may be the only talk where I try to include everything, and I think it’s interesting to look at the evolution of the expression of these ideas.

Plus, the talk is followed by a great analysis of the book’s ideas by Astra Taylor.
