Douglas Rushkoff Tells It Like It Is

Over at Galley Cat Jason Boog posted a two-minute video with Douglas Rushkoff (whose new book Life Inc.: How the World Became a Corporation and How to Take It Back is at the very top of my galley reading stack) about media conglomerates.

Not necessarily anything that hasn’t been said before, but I love the line about corporations being “an interface between shareholders and banks,” and that the music (and by extension, publishing) business has “removed the competence from their industry.”

BTW, Life, which comes out in June is published by Random House.
