Summary "It started with punk. Hip-hop, rave, graffiti, and gaming took it to another level, and now modern technology has made the ideas and innovations of youth culture increasingly intimate and increasingly global at the same time." "In The Pirate's Dilemma, VICE magazine's Matt Mason - poised to become the Malcolm Gladwell of the iPod Generation - brings the exuberance of a passionate music fan and the technological savvy of an IT wizard to the task of sorting through the changes brought about by the interface of pop culture and innovation. He charts the rise of various youth movements - from pirate radio to remix culture - and tracks their ripple effect throughout larger society." "With a cast of characters that includes such icons as the Ramones, Andy Warhol, Madonna, Russell Simmons, and 50 Cent - Mason uncovers the trends that have transformed countercultural scenes into burgeoning global industries and movements, ultimately changing our way of life."--BOOK JACKET.
