Party: Next-Door Neighbor Wrap; Rushkoff’s Life, Inc. Launch

June 15th, 2009 by Jeff Newelt

Team-ups are a time-honored tradition in comics. So its apropos that we celebrate the wrap of NEXT-DOOR NEIGHBOR, SMITH’s true-life webcomic anthology edited by Dean Haspiel, with not only a proper party, but a team-up of our own. Media theorist/author/longtime friend, Doug Rushkoff, has just launched his new book, LIFE INC: How the World Became a Corporation and How to Take It Back, and we can’t think of a better project to join forces with. That’s why SMITH, along with WFMU and ARTHUR Magazine, is toasting the wrap of NDN and launch of LIFE INC with a party on Thursday, June 18, at Sutra Lounge in NYC at 9pm. Facebook invite here you come!

Doug’s book reveals how we’ve been corporatized to the point that we don’t realize that our “money” isn’t actually the only form of currency, that we can create value for each other numerous ways, person-to-person, with numerous forms of “complementary currency” (e.g. doing things for each other and our communities). At SMITH, we like to consider the personal stories told by our community as our currency, buying your attention, as collective value is created by sharing wisdom, knowledge, laughs and tragedies in carefully crafted stories, comics and even Six-Word Memoirs. Doug’s book celebrates, from an unexpected angle, human connection and value creation, unmediated by a brand or corporation, and from this point of view, shows how our economic shithouse may just be a blessing in disguise. For a preview, watch this video of Doug digging into his idea below.

It so happens Doug’s wife Barbara Rushkoff wrote one of the most popular NDN stories, “Glenna Evans,” which makes our mashup soiree that much more …mashable. Join us 6/18, first at Bluestockings Bookstore where Doug will be discussing LIFE INC, and then for the party at Sutra Lounge, where you can meet and chill with Rushkoff, Haspiel and many NDN creators. The legendary Cedric IM Brooks amd some of his pals from the Skatalites who will be vibin’ us with jazzier Nyabinghish versions of the tunes they tour the world with, just for this occasion. Again, here’s the invite on our BFF, Facebook.

    Rushkoffs making the right ponits, and he does do his literate homework but he still suffers from the ailment that his very rational ways just go to feed the machine. His SWSX audience or that at the current TED’s that lost the E for Entertainment- and have substituted it with a G for Govern- just use his fame to underscore their own meta agendas .Let’s face it, hes become a Jon Stewart with out the funny timing. Maybe the same fate that fell McLuhan, as he became a talk show oddity in his later years.I dont think its the we should become programmers meme hes speading, but the know your media one the problem is really insideous since the medium he’s questioning is designed to use his contrarian remarks against him.The media induced psychosis that has infected us all for decades .So IF the techno-religion is what replaced science,reason and the humans god, how does one end it?,, i think the only answer is to present enough evidence of its harm that eventually the faith of its borg drones must question themselves.the only other answer is one of violence but that is how religious wars go.More rewards for doing- less for reporting. Especially in the digital age, where artifacts are temporary and too easily aquired

    At Ideal designs, we believe that design should not just look good. It should also work well, it should be memorable and it should connect with the end user. The success of many a business today depends on how vital a role ‘good’ design plays in its business strategy. Design is often the first thing that the consumer comes in contact with, before you can meet the company representative, you see the logo… and ‘good’ or ‘effective’ design has already started playing a vital role.
    Since everything that we see affect us, the important of designs cannot be emphasized enough. Our work accordingly strikes a delicate balance between creativity and aesthetics and market demands and consumer insights. Since design is art with a purpose at no point can any compromise be made on market realities.
