“The agony and ecstasy of Steve Jobs” monologue released under open license
Mike Daisey’s “The agony and ecstasy of Steve Jobs” is a bold take on the working conditions at Apple’s overseas factories from the viewpoint of the Apple’s former chief executive. The script is clever and it brought Daisey critics praise, and now the whole monologue is getting released under an open license over at Daisey’s blog. This means that anyone can tweak it, adapt it and get it ready for performance without having to pay royalty fees.
The timing is right after ABC’s Nightline special dedicated to Apple, but illuminates everything from a more serious viewpoint. The monologue depicts Jobs’ obsession with gadgets and technology, and how that affects us and transcends to thousands in China.
"Apple is reacting here to public pressure, and we can not afford the luxury of believing that anything happening now would happen without that pressure. We must not relent," Daisey said.
