Yes Men talk at MIT - 10/26/09 Answered

Picture of

The Yes Men are speaking at MIT next Monday, October 26th, in the Bartos Theater in the Media Lab (E15, on Ames St).  Wish I could pop over, but it's a long trip - if you get to go, share your thoughts.

Why do you want to see this talk?  From the posting:
The Yes Men have an unusual hobby: posing as top executives of corporations they hate. Armed with nothing but thriftstore suits, The Yes Men lie their way into business conferences and parody their corporate targets in ever more extreme ways – basically doing everything that they can to wake up their audiences to the danger of letting greed run our world. The Yes Men were featured in the documentary, The Yes Men Fix the World, which won the Panorama Audience Award at the 2009 Berlin Film Festival.

 *Reads title* Oh good, I thought the act of a man talking at MIT was punishable by death (or at least bludgeoning). Good to know this is not the case :-)

If you are looking,  I guess you find strong silent type of guy there or else the kind where newspaper reporters ask their neighbors; "Yeah, he was a quiet guy....but."
