The dark side of Apple: one man's monologue of misery:
His gripping monologue has made Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak cry and forced the company's new chief executive into a strident defence of Apple's supply chain, but now Mike Daisey has a message for Australian Apple fans: open your eyes.
For the past 15 months or so Daisey been touring the world stunning audiences with his two-hour tale of the appalling conditions and underage labour that goes into making our iPhones, iPods and iPads. The show, the Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs (review), has been running since Saturday at the Sydney Opera House and is due to conclude on Sunday.
Daisey has been performing monologues for 15 years on topics ranging from 9/11 to Nikola Tesla to Scientology creator L. Ron Hubbard. Earlier this month he presented a 24-hour epic, dubbed All the Hours in the Day.
