Douglas Rushkoff

 DouglasRushkoff-BLWinner of the first Neil Postman Award for Career Achievement in Public Intellectual Activity

Douglas Rushkoff, one of the most cutting edge thinkers of our time, is an author, teacher, and documentarian who focuses on the ways people, cultures, and institutions create, share, and influence each other’s values. He teaches media studies at NYU and the New School University, serves as technology columnist for The Daily Beast, and lectures around the world.

Rushkoff's new book, Program or Be Programmed: Ten Commands for a Digital Age, a followup to his Frontline documentary, "Digital Nation", is just out from OR Books. His last book, an analysis of the corporate spectacle called Life Inc., was also made into a short, award-winning film . His ten best-selling books on new media and popular culture have been translated to over thirty languages. They include Cyberia, Media Virus, Playing the Future, Nothing Sacred: The Truth about Judaism, Get Back in the Box: Innovation from the Inside Out and Coercion, winner of the Media Ecology Association’s Marshall Mcluhan Award for best media book. 

In addition, Rushkoff  has written and hosted three award-winning Frontline documentaries – "The Merchants of Cool" looked at the influence of corporations on youth culture, "The Persuaders", about the cluttered landscape of marketing, and new efforts to overcome consumer resistance, and most recently, "Digital Nation", about life on the virtual frontier.

Rushkoff writes a column for the music and culture magazine, Arthur, and his commentaries have aired on CBS Sunday Morning and NPR’s All Things Considered, and have appeared in publications from The New York Times toTime magazine.  He regularly appears on news and talk shows, and serves on numerous advisory boards, also lectures about media, art, society, and change at conferences and universities around the world.
