We praised The Agony and Esctacy of Steve Jobs when it played at Woolly Mammoth – Patrick saw it in March and l saw a preview when it was in development late last year. We were both fond of it.

Well, Daisey has an op-ed in the NYT today about Jobs that I suspect Jobs would respect, if not necessarily like, given his willingness to be hard-edged when the situation demands it. It’s a hard look that has a lot in common with Daisy’s show; it mixes admiration with concern and criticism, and includes some of the very pointed things about Apple’s international endeavors.

It’s a message about labor and freedom that seems very on-point this week, with the Occupy* folk showing up in DC and some of the media coverage of how prevalent Apple products are in those crowds. I encourage you to give it a read.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
