I remember listening to the words of Jello Biafra in high school, his spoken word works definatly help to shape me into the person that I am today. They allowed me to look at things in a way that I consider more intellegant than I think I would have otherwise been. While I don't agree with everything that he said, the sensationalism really helped to drive the message home.
But there is one of the recordings that I go back to time and time again becuase I think it shares a particular relevance to todays world. The work is called Become the Media in this work he urges people who are disatisfied with the world around them to get out there and do something about it.
As a software professional I am contastantly wondering how I apply my special skills to this equation. Is bloging the correct answer, I really don't think so. I realized long ago that I really don't have the writing skills to become a serious writer, but what I do have is a voice and a set of skills.
So this is a solicitation, if you are interested in working on a project that may help others to 'Become the Media' please leave me a comment with you name and some way that I can get a hold of you. I have to review each of the comments before they are posted so I will make sure that your info doesn't make it onto the site.
