The fact is that BMorg is "blessing" certain companies with the "BM brand" via invitation and placing them below the symbolic man in a pavillion built by the DPW and financed through our entry fees in a trade show/expo/worlds fair/epcot edutainment -like fashion.

It doesn't matter that we don't see the exhibitor's logos... They have been blessed by "the man" and green pavillion exhibitors can take that with them and use it looooooooong after the event is over.

Why didn't BMorg just accept "green" tech proposals (instead of issue invites) and place the green technology in our midst like any other theme camp?

Or take the whole blooming expo idea on the road to middle America and charge admission for people to see it?

I would not have had a problem with it at all if it had been done that way.

At present the BMorg is violating their own principle #3 and did not seek the opinion of their volunteer "invested shareholders/customers" before doing so. This is a common problem as organizations/companies grow. Those in the boardroom are prone to whims, flights of fancy and meglomania and forget what their main point and purpose is.

Culture Jamming is the most intelligent and creative way to let BMorg know how we feel. It is not threatening, violent or vandalism. It is a way to encourage people to think about the issues, and encourage dialog.

This thread is however is not about the debate.
It is about discussing methods to culture jam.
Please continue the debate back on a thread where that is being discussed.

Traditionally, this space has been exclusively devoted to art, but the Green Man Pavilion will be different.
The Pavillion will be the base of the man. That will make torching it early a bit tricky, but I for one am willing to rise to the challenge.

It's a bit of a shame about the art. Oh well, art had a good long run out on the playa. Now we'll have PROGRESS.

... until we burn it.

Joel, you are a genius. This gives mind boggling ideas for a multitude of acts of civil disobedience.
