On behalf of the DonorsChoose.org team, we would like to give a BIG thanks to Douglas Rushkoff for speaking to staff as part of our Guest Speaker Series! Douglass is a media theorist, writer, lecturer, and graphic novelist who recently debuted his most recent graphic novel ADD. We were so inspired by his presentation and his ability to engage every one of our staff members.
Screening Manager J. Alex Pruner captured our appreciation in saying, “Rushkoff’s work helps us to think critically about how we connect with each other online and in the real world. I agree with his philosophy that we should be drivers and not passengers of the technology we use every day.”
To learn more, follow Douglas on Twitter and check out this clip of him with another one of our favorite guys, Stephen Colbert.
