We see the light: disappointed at spending another birthday on a train, Walton complains that Cyberunions hasn’t made any money. How can we monetise this project?
Making this gig pay
- Sell web services to Occupy?
- Create an affiliate marketing programme selling Microsoft packages to unions?
- Punting proprietary databases programmes that keep unions locked in to expensive contracts
Disciplining workers and extracting the maximum surplus value
- We are tired of working. Maybe we can outsource the production of the podcast
- Employing people is so 21st Century – we can use unpaid interns
- Better yet, who needs people – maybe we can get a bot to do it all
What organisational framework will fit our production schedule best?
- Question is, do we favour libertarian or authoritarian capitalism?
- Walton’s Stalinist tendencies means he fetishises the firm hand of State power to keep production on schedule
- Stephen prefers a more subtle, ideological method, convincing our workers they are free
- Maybe a compromise is in order – absolute State brutality beneath a thin veneer of freedom
There’s more money to be made in the financial markets than in producing
- In fact, making things is so last century! We need to financialise
- Maybe we can develop a market for credit default swaps on whether the show is released on time]
- Stranger things have happened – and it would be perfect insider training
- Join us and get wealthy!
- Think and grow rich!
- We have the secret!
