I’m penciled in to see Douglas Rushkoff talk about his new book Present Shock at SXSWi this week.

I haven’t read much of his stuff, but find intriguing his thoughts on control.

This is a great intro video from VICE, where Rushkoff reflects on the relics of industrial politics and explains 21st century opportunities for ‘movements’ via Occupy.

The excitement you can sense in breaking down or hacking our ‘inventions’ (corporations, debt, industrialisation) is pretty important, and it’s a great lens to approach how we operate in business.

‘The object of the game is not to win. The object of the game is to develop a sustainable model.’

Looking forward to the session on Saturday.
