you need to get out more mate :ok:

Now, now. I do think this guy speaks interesting and valuable things. Broadening the horizons ;).

I loved his Open Source Democracy speech! Amazing :D.

And this:


Damn, heard it so many times and got bored, but he made it interesting... Keeping eyes on this lad now:D.

Exactly info0, the guy is looking at the world from a whole new perspective. When you take his approach it`s like everything you know is different. Whenever I `get out` all I see around me are sheep following the herd.

So, by following Douglas Rushkoff on youtube, his older stuff and people that inspire him, but especially his latest I find that I`m actually already experiencing(`reading`)his new book even before I`ve bought it. :)

The latest ...

A very entertaining talk between Joe Rogan and Douglas Rushkoff. If you only know Joe from Newsradio (http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/NewsRadio.jpg)(like I did)it might be a Baldrick (http://img.thesun.co.uk/multimedia/archive/01507/SNN1427BAL-532_1507876a.jpg) on Time Team (http://www.radiotimes.com/uploads/images/Original/27429.jpg) experience. :D

Just wanna follow up on this, not gonna change the topic since Doug was who led me into the crazy youtube journey I`ve been on lately. Now I`m in a place where these guys come visit me with their great experiences, maybe some of you are familiar with them.


Great interviews, great knowledge etc.

Out of respect I wont replace Alex Jones in my new world government, but I do wanna add Michael Rivero. His show is simular to Alex Show but better to watch/listen to.

On the Tuesday show, which I just watched/listened to, Rivero had an artist on who is doing some serious/funny protest paintings. Some examples:

Been listening to Mark Passio for a few weeks now, bits and pieces now and then. This was a nice video to wrap my head around. Great for when you have time nor patience, its only 7 hours. :P

Never heard that description before lol, but his theories are certainly `out there`. Altho after hundreds of hours of info some things seem not so much out there anymore, more `in here`.

They will dont worry, they just need things to get a little bit worse. It`s inevitable.

So far, what Hawking predicted came true...


If that comes true, human race will have massive problem in the future... (people laughed at Terminator? Think twice now ;)).

Och and self learning program is already being used. It's called Google Translator. Completely unmanned self learning program, but at the moment pretty primitive.

I`m not so much worried about technology and/or A.I. to be honest. I think technology will end up with what we already are and proof itself to be useless.
