story of stuff

December 6, 2007

I found the story of stuff linked off of one of the  bike blogs I read regularly. It’s a good 20minute flash video about consumer society and the processes involved.

For those folks who don’t want to deal with flash or are HoH/Deaf here’s the annotated script  as a pdf.

Worth spending a little time checking out – especially before you buy presents for people this holiday season.

    Leftist propaganda videos are often pretty nifty. Check out The Meatrix too.

    I found it thought provoking and well done. I particularly liked the consumption statistics & social “tricks” used to promote consumption. Thanks for the tip.
