MindBanking Manifesto

  2. 2. How the hell they tricked us!? (In an episode: The Brain Strikes Back) Digitally converged media environment, posteconomy and funky business all were preaching the same propaganda, “The capital is dancing with the talented”. The posteconomy Eldorado promised investments in great ideas, no matter how much capital has already been invested, how much one has in the bank, as long as the idea is brilliant and over the top.
