  • Throwing Rocks at the Google Bus

    “Every great advance begins when someone sees that what everyone else takes for granted may not actually be true. Douglas Rushkoff questions the deepest assumptions of the modern economy, and blazes a path towards a more human centered world.”
    –Tim O’Reilly, founder of O’Reilly Media

  • Present Shock

    This is a wondrously thought-provoking book. Unlike other social theorists who either mindlessly decry or celebrate the digital age, Rushkoff explores how it has caused a focus on the immediate moment that can be both disorienting or energizing. In an era that seems intent on deleting the art of narrative, Rushkoff creates a compelling narrative of the way we now live.”

    – Walter Isaacson

  • Generation Like

    Fretting about social media corrupting youth these days risks sounding like an earlier generation of parents wringing their hands over Elvis and the Beatles. Yet Frontline has found a way into the conversation by delving into the insidious way corporate marketers — including Hollywood — have insinuated themselves into the process, turning enthusiastic fans into co-opted marketing minions. “Generation Like” is a fascinating look into a world where Retweets, Likes and other online endorsements have become social currency, spawning a new breed of consultants unabashedly seeking to take the risk out of public opinion.” — Brian Lowry, Variety
