Douglas Rushkoff is a terrific speaker. His lectures about life in the digital age are lively and thought-provoking. I always come away from a Rushkoff talk with a better understand of what's happening in the world. If Rushkoff comes to your town, go see him. In the meantime BetterListen! has put together a 201-minute collection of his talks based on his books, Present Shock, Life Inc, and Program or Be Programmed.
