Welcome! First Week and First Post…


Hello there.  You found the blog.

For the first week, I want you to listen to the This American Life episode #454 “Mr. Daisey and the Apple Factory.”  For reasons that will become clearer, this is not an easy file to find.  Right now, I have a streaming version available here.  Let me know if you have problems with it.

After listening, write 2-3 paragraphs about your reaction to any part of the podcast/radio show.

DO NOT DO ANY ADDITIONAL RESEARCH OR GOOGLING about the episode.  You may have already heard about the episode, or Apple and Jobs and China.  Fine, but please listen to this with open ears and mind.

Some possible questions.

– Is it powerful?  Moving? Funny? Infuriating?

– What kinds of relationships do we have with our products?

– What additional information would you like now?
