The Improbable Ascent of Mike Daisey

The Improbable Ascent of Mike DaiseyCall me an old-timer, but I remember Mike Daisey from the days when he secretly broke into with a camcorder and scandalized himself by opening a peephole of light into Amazon's cult-like confines. Mike was such an inspiration to all of us dammed and displaced dotcom workers that we wrote up his life story; this article still languishes somewhere on's servers.

But look at Mike today: he's got a new show that just opened in New York and the New York Times gave it a glowing review. Who says that netslaves never have a nice day?
