Rushkoff to Google: Don’t Give Up on the Humans

I gave a talk at Google last November while touring for Program or Be Programmed, and after losing the video file they finally found it again and put it up. My main message to them, which occurs in a mysteriously glitched segment at the opening, was: Don’t Give Up on the Humans.

It was a very strange experience for me – being in the belly of the borg itself, a true corporation in its own right, but a place that feels almost idealistic when I compare it with what I’ve experienced of Facebook.
