Corporate Goals & ObjectivesHow can Y2K function in the dominant narrative?
Entertain millenial cravings in a sound and cost-effective manner
Establish purely technical issues as objects of popular fear
- corporations and persons on same side
- preëmpt backlash at corporate abuse?
what we're talking about with this, corporate actions, it's theater--speaking here generally about this sort of thing as theater. USE the same techniques, tap into the power, be theatrical.
other corporate theater--nature documentaries.
we can use that same theater thing. What we have is consciousness... Corp. thing mechanical and NOT conspiratorial. We can be conspiratorial. Corporations SO not conspiratorial--which is why they can't be "responsible citizens", they're mechanical. Columbia Law School...
NOT conscious conspiracy--just the best way to make money, is to have this big scary hing that is in the computer--
It's us against the past. Corporations and people on the same side.
Corporate job easier because most y2k bugs indeed void of psychological content.
"Reuse and recycle"--take these "bugs" and claim them all, and use them to good effect. Very New Age. Very ecology-minded.
Orig text: At Y2K Industries, we have studied the potential risks associated with new perspectives on an era of global markets and global policies. The new millenium has the potential to destabilize, to function as a lens through which the public's attention is focussed on the economic developments we've all fought so hard to achieve. The Y2K Industries Business Plan combines technology with emotion, to pit us all squarely against the past, pure and simple.… The Y2K Business Plan aims to cast millenium as a technical issue—manageable and dramatic.
