Ben Barren - Confessions of a Mad Man » A Revolutionary Road for Hackers in 2009.

A Revolutionary Road for Hackers in 2009.

The Modern Workplace

I caught Revolutionary Road tonite, the Sam Mendes directed : Leo-Kate Titanic reunited, movie that while good, makes me realise how much better Mad Men is. Firstly Mad Men can go as deep as wants to into dysfunctionality, relationships, nostalgio, gender etc - but there is something about all the characters from Draper to Peggy and Joan, that makes you want to watch and root for them.

every1 is cheating on reservation road

Season 2 of Mad Men is also about the breakdown and then build up of the playing happy but not so happy on inside Betty Draper. The benefit of having 13 episodes to set a character up, then 13 episodes to explore, is something which in the Kate Winslet equally unhappy housewife who doesnt know what to do, we only see the smallest of glimpses compared to the ride we go on with January Jones in Mad Men.

kate + leo titanic 2.0

In Revolutionary Road (download ere), u arent rooting for any1, and it ends bad. Not sure its worth 8/10 on imdb. It is a good film though, but u want a better outcome. Sorry but why pay $15 for that, thanku bittorrent. Slumdog Millionaire on the other was gritty, tough, there was torture, but enjoyable, uplifting although not too clean an ending for all involved either. Now I’ve just gotta wait for the Wrestler to the interwebs as I’m a fan of the director from Pi on, and think Mickey Rourke will rock it.

Anyway was about to go to bed and read this essay by Kevin Kelleher about 2009 being the year of the Hacker, and eerily reflected alot of the thoughts I’ve been having and/or seeing happen out in the world :

the fun doesnt last

I wonder what kind of creativity could be unleashed by workers who, though deprived of a steady paycheck, are freed from such tedious tasks. Some could come up with new ideas that help vault the web to a more advanced stage. Others may make micro-contributions that are equally powerful in aggregate. Such creativity could then foster an entirely new generation of startups, which would eventually lure away some of those who had remained at steady jobs all along.”
