Our Blog is Hip

So says The Village Voice, which included our ongoing discussion in its Education Supplement’s Brief Guide to Blogodemia.

According to writer Geeta Dayal:

“Impossibly hip NYU prof (he doubles as the keyboardist in the latest incarnation of Psychic TV!) and Frontline media personality Rushkoff sounds off on George W. Bush, cybercultural trends, culture jamming, the Renaissance, and scores of other unlikely topics.”

Well thanks, Geeta. It’s nice to be called “impossibly hip” – even though it’s the community that comes here, rather than me, doing truly the hip part. For the fact that the Voice finds value in the kind of lateral thinking happening here of value in “Blogodemia” is a credit to the wide variety of perspectives that grace these conversations.
