Thanks to Don Caldarazzo for doing the transcript.

 

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 show!

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.

But let's get started here by getting a definition. What is "Present Shock?"

Rob Kall has spent his adult life as an awakener and empowerer-- first in the field of biofeedback, inventing products, developing software and a music recording label, MuPsych, within the company he founded in 1978-- Futurehealth, and founding, organizing and running 3 conferences: Winter Brain, on Neurofeedback and consciousness, Optimal Functioning and Positive Psychology (a pioneer in the field of Positive Psychology, first presenting workshops on it in 1985) and Storycon Summit Meeting on the Art Science and Application of Story-- each the first of their kind.  Then, when he found the process of raising people's consciousness and empowering them to take more control of their lives  one person at a time was too slow, he founded Opednews.com-- which has been the top search result on Google for the terms liberal news and progressive opinion for several years. Rob began his Bottom-up Radio show, broadcast on WNJC 1360 AM to Metro Philly, also available on iTunes, covering the transition of our culture, business and world from predominantly Top-down (hierarchical, centralized, authoritarian, patriarchal, big)  to bottom-up (egalitarian, local, interdependent, grassroots, archetypal feminine and small.) Recent long-term projects include a book, Bottom-up-- The Connection Revolution, debillionairizing the planet and the Psychopathy Defense and Optimization Project.
