At the CULTUREcon Philly reception, my intention was to use music to reinforce what we'd learned throughout the day--so I took my first stab at being a DJ. I started the playlist with John Lennon's Imagine, followed by Black Eyed Peas' One Tribe. Later I played this one by Anne Hill:
The Give Away Song
Let us take what we have been given,Let us take what we have been given,
Let us take what we have been given,
Let us take it and give it away.
The Gift Economy
Today's Culture Tech must be about the gift economy. An insatiable quest for more, more, more gives us power grabs, hoarding and scarcity. We need to shift perspectives--we need to declare we've got enough stuff, and redirect our focus to arenas of infinite depth--love, intelligence, creativity. Only in this way can we become satiated, can we happy.
Let us take what we have been given, and let us give it away!
