[liberationtech] Spot(s) available: Play about Steve Jobs/Apple tomorrow in berkeley

I have two spots left in a group that is going to berkeley tomorrow 
evening (Feb. 24) to see the critically acclaimed, one-man play called 
"The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs", leaving Stanford at 6 pm and 
returning by 11:30 pm. The tickets are free, but restricted to those under 
30 years of age (that was the basis for the discount). The play is 
somewhat controversial, but I think it is good to get exposed to its 
perspective. If you want to come along, please email me asap.

Here is the description from the website:

"In The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs, Mike Daisey dives into the epic 
story of a real life Willy Wonka. He examines how the CEO of Apple and his 
obsessions profoundly shape our everyday lives - and travels to China to 
investigate the factories where millions toil to make iPhones and iPods. This 
dangerous journey shines a brilliant light on our love affair with our devices 
and the human cost of creating them." 

You can see some reviews linked at the website of the play's next stop in d.c.,
