Monday, we're joined by renowned media theorist Douglas Rushkoff. His new book is a look at "presentism," a state he describes as our new relationship with time in the digital era. Everything is live and happening right now and it's left us in a state of shock. It's changed how we think about goals, how we tell stories and how we understand the world. We'll talk about "Present Shock," that's the name of his book, and about pressing pause to return to real time and the real world.
Douglas Rushkoff is a media theorist and author. Among his books are Program or Be Programmed, Life Inc and his newest Present Shock: When Everything Happens Now. Rushkoff has taught for NYU's Interactive Telecommunications Program and lectures on media, art, society and change at conferences and universities around the world.
