Oh well, my Ted talk has my name spelled incorrectly. I guess that's what I get for finally doing one!

I'd buy that book - if I hadn't already bought several copies and given them away as presents.  Buy MORE copies now!

Douglas Rushkoff says the idea that a lawless Web could run smoothly and fairly is outdated.

This is not enough for a company that appears dedicated to uploading human consciousness to the cloud, no matter how many robot warriors we have protecting our virtual reality servers from the people left behind.

Gone are 20th-century style movements like Civil Right with their clear goals, charismatic leaders, and inviting narrative arcs that everyone traveled together until finally arriving at the promised land. From the impatient immediacy of the Tea Party to the goalless steady state of Occupy,...

Just joined, thanks. I'm embarking on a new book project about the economic possibilities unleashed by digital technologies and the digital media environment (as opposed to the industrial age media environment). I think this community will be of great value to me, and that I might be of value back.

Sounds like the new book relates a lot to Art's prezi: http://prezi.com/xmzld_-wayho/new-economy-new-wealth/  I would argue that part of the transformation of digital is that currency can be more easily encoded with attributes (community, history, etc) and while that might limit trade in small groups, with digital global connectedness, it works. Also, there is a persistent effort to move more into acknowledgement forms of currency - "reputation" for example. Making reputation digital enables greater interaction of looser connections, which increases flows, serendipity, and thus catalyzes innovation.
