@zephoria That was the point in GenLike - not to blame teens at all, but to reveal the commercial media environment we created for them.

@rushkoff Except how it appears / got picked up is to be stunned by teens, not to reflect on what we've done to them

@zephoria true enough. Except I might blame our own generation's ignorance of market forced more than tech.

@rushkoff I blame our culture of fear. We've constructed a world where the only "safe" space teens are "free" to inhabit is commercial.

@zephoria But the non commercial places in media are less attractive to most teens so far.

@rushkoff Uh... What non-commercial spaces are attractive to anyone other than Wikipedia (which teens use)?

@rushkoff The internet stopped being non-commercial in the late 90s. Like adults, teens look for "free" not for commercial/non-commercial.

) The Government is All In
In Silicon Valley, the tech ecosystem has already gone through a couple decades of iterations and cycles to naturally produce an environment conducive to tech entrepreneurs. However, most non-Silicon Valley markets (including domestic and international), need support from the government to jumpstart a favorable ecosystem and promote entrepreneurship. Currently, no country in the world has more backing per capita from the government than Korea. In the next 3 years alone, they’ll put $3.7 BILLION into startups in the form of grants and other initiatives

http://c4ss.org/content/27704

the internet in practice is not an organic mesh of individuals, but a few thousand organizations that are loosely tied together in clusters. In theory each organization controls the connections that comprise its internal network and, again in theory, they build physical links and negotiate contracts with one another to pass packets between networks. This peering takes many forms, passing traffic at different speeds and costs, but the traffic itself has largely been treated homogeneously.

so long as only a few hundred or thousand organizations control the material connections that everything travels on we will always be in danger of the state. Even a hundred thousand networks could still be beaten into collaboration with a censorship regime. 
To head off such retreats, to keep the statists on the playing field, we must build a world of proactive, individual-scale connections. In the more trivial ad hoc limit this can look like peer-to-peer connections between the phones of passing strangers, but when it comes to building lasting resilient bonds there’s no replacing on the ground community organizing. The sort of projects anarchists have long taken the lead in, building one-on-one relationships of trust and strengthening the human roots upon which all other relations are built.

Children are used to living an emotional richness that can’t be captured in words.They don’t worry about trying to organize their lives into neat little narratives. Their experience of life is more direct because they spend less time on interfering thoughts about themselves.
