Some good Daisey links

I have been working on a timeline of my experience of the Agony/Ecstasy affair, but it's taking too long so for those interested it would be good to have something up which is a bit shorter and more succinct.

1) Retraction. The retraction episode of This American Life, where they, in highly dramatic fashion, massacre Mike Daisey.

2) *. Extract from the performance by Mike Daisey. Focuses on Mike's visit to the Foxconn factory in Shenszen, where the Ipad and Iphone are made. This is surprisingly not available any more. **Note: interestingly, this material is no longer legally available for free. I am sharing a copy I have obtained legally, (it was initially available for free download) and this, for me, falls under the category of "fair dealing" under Australian Copyright Law because "I, myself am making the criticism or review" i.e that this material falls under the collection of material which I am reviewing as part of my performance. If you would like to sue me for this, instead go and "flush your head in the dunny". The author of this work is Mike Daisey, and This American Life, whose latest piece of journalism is 'In Dog We Trust' - Stories of dogs and cats and other animals that live in our homes. Exactly how much are they caught up in everyday family dynamics? We answer this question and others.'

I'm glad they upheld their moral journalistic crusade so that they could answer the big questions. Woof!

3) George Hunka gives the best analysis of the thing at (I post under an alias 4 Coffins)

4) Further information and links round-up are available

5) Alli Houseworth, one of the former publicists of the Wooly Mammoth theatre, Washington D.C,  which was the theatre that initially supported the development of the work, gives a wounded outburst at, just one of many people who felt betrayed. (I post on this blog as Richard)

6) Scott Walters posts a good defence (which is subsequently massacred) of Mike on the Huffington Post.
(part 1) and (part 2) (I post under Richard)
