Well for one thing, Wall Street is being occupied by kids and hoodlums and professors and average joes AND the founder of AdBusters (where I used to volunteer — don’t tase me bro!). The cause? Putting people at the centre of politics and policy instead of corporate interests. Psssst – you won’t hear much about this on mainstream media, but you can get live-action coverage here and here:
Netflix pissed off its customer base (as in, 1,000,000 cancelled their subscriptions level of pissed off) more by their apology than their original offence. Funny side story – their new spinoff company, christened Qwikster, failed to account for the pot-smokin’, foul-mouthed, wanna-get-laid dude who has the Qwikster twitter handle. Poor guy woke up to find he had 12,000 followers instead of 69.
oh. and our stocks have gone to hell.
