Rushkoff coined such concepts as "viral media" and "social currency," and has been a leading voice for applying digital media toward social and economic justice.

He lives in Hastings-on-Hudson, New York.


"In Team Human, [Rushkoff] enumerates the ways connectedness matters, and argues that the technology we think connects us today is in fact tearing us apart... his cause is worthy: 'The first step toward reversing our predicament is to recognize that being human is a team sport'..."" -- New Scientist
