[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."
