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.
