Video Interview with Richard Barbrook

by Trebor Scholz
<46 minutes>

Need for critical theory, isolation of the university, class issues in education, education as slavery, closed access scholarly publications, open access movements, tenure, factory vs. campus, independent thinking vs. 19th century pedagogy, liberalism vs. socialism, commodity vs. gift, techno-optimism vs. techno-pessimists

Richard Barbrook is one of the most radical critics of the neo-liberal cyber-elite. In contrast, Barbrook thinks that the importance of the latest wave of technological innovation lies precisely in its ability to challenge the ideologies of the self-proclaimed opinion leaders. The Net allows for the emergence of spontaneous and flexible virtual communities, defining themselves less by market exchange than by social convention.
