original pirate material

With The Pirate’s Dilemma, journalist Matt Mason shows how changes in music, technology, and youth culture in general affect the marketplace and our day-to-day existence.

Covering everything from punk and hip-hop to street art and sea-fort dwelling principalities, Mason shows how the pirate mindset and “cut-and-paste” culture have created a new brand of marketplace competition and unforeseen developments in how we create and consume.

Part history, part commentary, The Pirate’s Dilemma proves to be an engaging and surprisingly fun read. Mason utilizes a conversational tone and youthful patois that still comes off as intelligent and well-informed and doesn’t end up sounding like a graying, tweed-wearing professor attempting to incorporate words like “bling-bling” into the discussion in an attempt at keeping up with the times.
