R.U. Sirius interviewed by Rushkoff

R.U. Sirius thinks his new interview by Douglas Rushkoff on the Team Human podcast may be his best interview ever. This was a good enough recommendation for me, so I downloaded it to my phone (using the Podkicker Android app) and listened to it on the way to work. Lots of interesting discussion about transhumanism, Peter Thiel, the meaning of "counterculture" in the current age and the shattering of consensus reality. Also, quite a bit of discussion about Sirius' music. I do think these guys are a bit too pessimistic. Technological breakthroughs are almost always the toys of the rich at first, but they tend to diffuse to ordinary folks like me. I have a smartphone, too, although I still can't afford an iPhone!
