Farming From San Francisco

Every job is middle management.

Everyone is caught between someone above and someone below.  

And that hook that captures you is always tricky.  Sometimes that sharp little tine is friendship.  Sometimes, its money.  Sometimes it’s merely the image that we would like to claim for ourselves.

For a moment, we see the CTO Ed Kowalski, never the most sympathetic character, dangling between heaven and earth, between the boss above and the employee below.

Not everyone holds to the company policy.

What Big Tech Doesn’t Know Big Time

They don’t talk.

They don’t write.

They don’t really like dealing with each other.

Yet, they need each other, need each other in a fundamental, all consuming way.  

We’re talking about Tech and Government, in case there was any question.  

And do you know how we know, how we know this?  

Because this is one of the things we do at How We Manage Stuff.  We have a small policy office on the unfashionable side of Capitol Hill that is led by Sulley, our Policy and PR Director.  From this vantage, Sulley and his staff help Tech leaders understand why they need government and Washington policy-makers appreciate that tech is not quite as frightening as they thought.

So we’ve got a new client – a hapless Tech Giant called T&S – and we’re about to start a new story.  It features Debbon Ayer as the CEO Abby Alton, Kit Kuksenok as the CTO genius Ed Kowalski, Margaux Amie as Senator Christine Stassen, and Geoffrey Grier as government administrator Morris Fitz.  

 But before we start this narrative, the head of our Washington Office, Sulley, walks down the median of Pennsylvania Avenue to explain what is about to happen.

And so the new series begins “What Big Tech Doesn’t Know” from the audio drama “How We Manage Stuff.”

 

Cast:

  • Sulley, HWMS Washington Director – Josh LaForce
  • Fan in a car – Jake Minevich 
  • Bicyclist  – Sarah Corbyn Woolf
  • Tour Guide  – Jake Minevich
  • Cop  – Jake Minevich
