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.
Mason brings a passion and a breadth of intelligence to questions such as the
following: How did a male model who messed with disco records in the 1970s
influence the way Boeing designs airplanes? Who was the nun who invented dance
music, and how is her influence undermining capitalism as we know it? Did three
high school kids who remixed Nazis into Smurfs in the 1980s change the future of
the video game industry? Can hip-hop really bring about world peace? Each
chapter crystallizes the idea behind one of these fringe movements and shows how
it combined with technology to subvert old hierarchies and empower the
individual.

With great wit and insight -- and 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.
