Rob Kall: And
welcome to the Rob Kall Bottom Up Radio Show, WNJC 1360 AM out of Washington
Township, reaching metro Philly and South Jersey, sponsored by Opednews.com. My guest tonight is Douglas
Rushkoff. Douglas is the author of ten
books. The one we're going to talk about
is Present Shock. Welcome to the
Douglas Rushkoff Hi!
Good to be with you.
Rob Kall: Yeah. You know, I looked at the title, and it
grabbed me because I love Alvin Toffler's Future Shock, written - what,
40 years ago? Something like that?
Douglas Rushkoff Mm hmm.
Rob Kall: And then I
started reading it, and this book grabbed me over and over again, in so many
different ways. You've written a really
good, exciting, fascinating, smart book here that I think will be very valuable
for anybody who is interested in the Web.
What really grabbed me is, a lot of the topics that you're discussing
are things I've worked with for a long time.
