This superb discussion about Platform Co-ops entitled “What happened to the future?” was the plenary at the recent event “The People’s Disruption” at the New School in New York on the 10th of November 2017.
The panel session features an introduction from Camille Kerr (Associate Director at The ICA Group) and is moderated by Douglas Rushkoff (author of many books on digital society and economics including Throwing Rocks at the Google Bus, Present Shock, and Program or Be Programmed).
The panel includes Yochai Benkler (an Israeli-American author and the Berkman Professor of Entrepreneurial Legal Studies at Harvard Law School), Alicia Garza (Strategy and Partnerships Director for the National Domestic Workers Alliance and the co-founder of the Black Lives Matter Network) and Felicia Wong (President and CEO of the Roosevelt Institute).
At one hour 50 minutes long it may seem lengthy but make sure to watch until the end for some extremely valuable discussions about strategies to grow the platform co-op movement and ideas about the emerging narrative which is replacing neoliberalism. It’s better viewing than anything you will find on Netflix.
