What comes after networks? The 'network' has been a defining feature of human activity since its conceptualization, and has found its way into nearly all facets of life: there are social and technological networks, biological and electrical networks, media networks and theoretical networks. But there are fundamental frictions to networks, and though it may be tough to understand what a world without them would be like, that is perhaps the best reason to ask anyway.

Is Futurama the Best Argument Against Transhumanism? | Idea Channel | PBS Digital Studios

pbs, idea channel, mike rugnetta, kornhaber brown, transhumanism, Futurama, Teilhard de chardin, the future of man, Ray Kurtz, Max Moore, Kurt Vonnegut, abolutionism, harrison bergeron

Transhumanism is a scientific philosophy that says technology will solve all our human biological constraints and that immortality is right around the corner (well not RIGHT around the corner, but WAYYY closer). They envision a world of endlessly euphoric robo-humans that represent the next step in evolution. And while this sounds super awesome, we had to ask, will this really make us happy?! If you watch Futurama, than you know that the answer is probably NO. While not an exact illustration of transhumanism, Futurama does show a future of vast technological ability, where today's everyday problems are rendered moot, and yet the characters on the show still seem to find themselves in some very non-euphoric emotional states. Does this disprove what transhumanists expect for our future?

The fallacies fly thick and fast as a feminist ideologue attempts to explain why egalitarianism is not a superior moral framework to feminism.

Update: Mike has responded very maturely here:

Note: MIke's wonderful "explanation of egalitarianism" here, and it is just as misapprehended as his video:

"As far as I understand it, the general principle of egalitarianism is “equality”. That all people should be treated as equals regardless of their race, gender, socio-economic status, and so on. This is awesome! And great! There is no shortage of people who agree. I agree! The question then becomes How does egalitarianism seek to accomplish this very lofty goal?"

By people treating each other as equals, Mike. It's that simple.

Boiling down an entire GENERATION of people into one neat little set of descriptors or pinning upon them the responsibility for the failure of some industry or fast food item is ABSURD. But either way, it happens. And in our current clickbait dystopia, it happens to millennials ... a lot. Maybe because, since we’re narcissistic, we’re obsessed with what people are saying about us so we’ll click on whatever calls us out. And because, as we work through our hit list of industries, olds wanna know what segment of the capitalist utopia we’re gunning for next. Today, we’re going to accept this silly premise… that millennials are lazy ruiners of things who never want to grow up. And we’re going to talk–on the complainers own terms–about why that may be the case. And to do that: we’re gonna talk about HOW GENERATIONS WORK so we can once...

Welcome to Crash Course World Mythology, our latest adventure (and this series may be literally adventurous) in education. Over the next 40 episodes or so, we and Mike Rugnetta are going to learn about the world by looking at the foundational stories of a bunch of different cultural traditions. We’re going to look at the ways that people’s stories define them, and the ways they shape their culture. We’re going to learn about gods, goddesses, heroes, and tricksters, and a lot more. We’re going to walk the blurry line between myth and religion, and we’re going to like it.

Crash Course is made with Adobe Creative Cloud. You can get a free trial of all the tools we use here:

Here's an idea: Mike Rugnetta reinvented the critical essay for the web. As host of Idea Channel, Mike deep-dives into a single idea every week, drawing connections between pop culture, technology and art—with a healthy side dish of animated GIFs. In its first year, it's racked up over 12 million views and over 300,000 subscribers on YouTube. A programmer and composer in Brooklyn, Mike previously toured as one-third of MemeFactory, a performative lecture about the Internet, soon to be released as a book.

Recorded in September 2013 at XOXO, an arts and technology festival in Portland, Oregon celebrating independent artists using the Internet to make a living doing what they love. For more, visit

You're probably a hipster.

We all hate hipsters, right? They seem so smug and arrogant, with their ray bans and scarves and ironic t-shirts. Even those who CLEARLY ARE hipsters still recoil at the label. Embracing irony over earnestness, the key to hipsters is not just what they enjoy, but how they enjoy it. Borrowing from other subcultures, (see: Handlebar mustaches and flannel shirts), hipsters reappropriate these fashion elements as their own. But don't we all do that? Our own fashion came from SOMEWHERE, and certainly has been refined. Do we all have a little bit of hipster blood in us?

If you play video games, you've shot a gun. And those guns are REALISTIC. So real that many are actually LICENSED by IRL arms dealers. Which means that when you buy a video game, you're also putting money in the pockets of those gun manufacturers. That's fine and dandy if you're a fan of guns, but if you are someone who considers themselves anti-gun, this creates quite the moral quandary.

So. Whether you like it or not, when you say the word G-I-F, especially on the internet, people are gonna talk about it. Some will correct you, some will correct the people correcting you, it’s the same conversation every time. Over and over and over. Which is why Mike proposed a third pronunciation way back when: Zhaif, or in the IPA: ʒaɪf. Because if you can’t beat them, leave town and set up camp in the wilderness. But really though, what is it about this one word that has people up in arms about the “right” way to pronounce it? There are plenty of other words that have differing pronunciations across cultures, borders and languages. So why is GIF the word people go to war for?

Mike lives in New York City and makes the majority of his living as a composer writing only Creative Commons licensed works. Not only does he think it important for makers to know Copyleft and non-restrictive licenses are a viable option for making their living, but also that they are preferable in so many ways to the broken, confusing media rights management system which takes advantage of all but the most accomplished and pays the consumer absolutely no mind (and yet somehow, we are not all collectively outraged). He would like to tell his Little Rights Management Story in the hopes that - at the very least - someone in the audience won't make the same stupid mistakes he did based entirely on false assumptions.

TRIGGER WARNINGS! The internet’s method of warning viewers that the discussion or content they are about to view may ‘trigger’ anxiety or PTSD. But as trigger warnings move out of private spaces and into public ones, like college classrooms, do they limit conversation? Or is it the opposite?

It's no secret that on the internet, cats rule supreme. But why? What is it about cats that so thoroughly entertains and mesmerizes human beings? As part of Purina's Better With Pets Summit, held on November 19th, 2013, PBS Idea Channel host Mike Rugnetta takes a deep and humorous dive into our tireless obsession with cats in the digital world — even wondering whether the Internet itself is made of cats. From historical examples and social media trends to the curious effects of toxoplasmosis, he examines
this cultural phenomenon from an array of fascinating angles.

The PBS Idea Channel uploaded a video about the history of pizza and so I wondered how many times did the host say "Pizza"?

Not Too Deep, Grace Helbig, superstar, superficial interview, Mike Rugnetta

My good friend Mike Rugnetta joined me on the podcast when I was in New York recently and we had a fantastic time. You know he speaks much more slowly in person? And without all the memes over his shoulders? Hey! Here's an idea. Listen to this podcast!
- This episode is brought to you by Bulu Box -- the monthly box of healthy discoveries that will upgrade your health. Use promo code "Grace" and get a 3 month Bulu Box subscription for just 10 bucks!

You know those podcasts where famous people recount their lives and careers, and then things get emotional? That is NOT this show! Hosted by internet superstar Grace Helbig, "Not Too Deep" is a ridiculous, silly, and unapologetically superficial interview podcast, that is more about the laffs than about , feels.

With every new product release comes a glorious wealth of new Unboxing videos. For the uninitiated, unboxing videos are exactly what they sound like. A person gets a new thing, and film themselves removing it from the packaging. But why do people film these videos, and why do others WATCH these videos? Well for one thing, these videos show what the products ARE, without the annoying filter of marketing. Maybe unboxing videos glorify the act of acquiring and owning? Is there a sensual element to these videos? Watch the episode and find out!
