Or he thinks there’s trouble. 

Or maybe heard that there might be trouble.

Big Tech: Act III

hwms.coverart

It starts with a pool game.  

It ends with a riot.  

And in the middle, there’s a guy who sounds a lot like Henry Kissinger.

Except he makes tea.

The plans have been made.  The execution is proving hard.  We’ve had to bring some extra talent to the project (and some time soon we’ll have to thin about how much that talent is costing.)  The client is not helping things much and we’re undermining ourselves. 

The third act of “What Big Tech Doesn’t Know”, a story of how Tech misjudges government and government underestimates the purveyors technology.  

Cast:

  • Sahara Ale – Yasmin, Attorney-Advisor
  • Margaux Amie – Rachel D’Fino, aide to Senator Stassen; Senator Christine Stassen; Evelyne of T&S
  • Zoe Anastassiou – Faith of Beva’s Place; Waiter; Female Aide
  • Debbon Ayer – Abby Alton, CEO of T&S
  • Ron Bianchi – The Ancient One; Waiter; Bashir, the Uber Driver
  • Anastasia Deloret – Karine from the EU Office
  • Geoffrey Grier – Fitz Morris of NTIA; Vinny of HWMS
  • Kit Kusenok – Ed Kowalski, CTO of T&S
  • Josh LaForce – Sulley Bowman, Director HWMS Washington Office
  • Noah Masur – Buckley Williams of Federation for Digital Future; Male Aide
  • Jake Minevich – Victor Numerov of T&S; Chad Dockerly of Technica Publica

Big Tech: Act II

hwms.coverart

Usual cast of characters.

A tech bro who is a bully. 

A very smart CEO who just doesn’t seem to understand.  

A consultant who is finding her way in a lost, lost world.

Plus there are a pair of coworkers who have great sport commenting on the situation, the owner of a woman’t coworkspace that is treated with foreclosure and a Washington insider who once ran the world, even though he is constantly flummoxed by toner cartridges.  

Thus begins our second act of “What Big Tech Doesn’t Know”, a story of how Tech misjudges government and government underestimates the purveyors technology.  

Cast:

  • Sahara Ale – Yasmin, Attorney-Advisor

  • Zoe Anastassiou – Faith of Beva’s Place; Waiter; Female Aide

Big Tech: Act I

hwms.coverart

They seem like such nice people.  

It’s just too bad that things didn’t quite go as planned.  

We have a young attorney advisor.

And a director of public relations .

And an mess they didn’t anticipate.  

The How We Manage Stuff audio drama tackles the issue of technology in government.  The leaders of an internet giant, Talking & Shopping, arrive in Washington in an effort to improve their public image and then immediately start taking steps to destroy it.  

They have no idea what they are doing.  None at all. 

And so they have hired consultants, the boutique group How We Manage Stuff, to help them in their perilous task.  Along the way they meet bureaucrats in love with their own voice, Congressional Aides in with political gossip, and interns in love with the mere image of leadership.  

So begins our tale.  The first seven episodes of the Audio Drama “What Big Tech Doesn’t Know.”

Cast:

  • Sahara Ale – Yasmin, Attorney-Advisor
  • Margaux Amie – Rachel D’Fino, aide to Senator Stassen; Senator Christine Stassen; Evelyne of T&S
  • Zoe Anastassiou – Faith of Beva’s Place; Waiter; Female Aide
  • Debbon Ayer – Abby Alton, CEO of T&S
  • Ron Bianchi – The Ancient One; Waiter; Bashir, the Uber Driver
  • Anastasia Deloret – Karine from the EU Office
  • Geoffrey Grier – Fitz Morris of NTIA; Vinny of HWMS
  • Kit Kusenok – Ed Kowalski, CTO of T&S
  • Josh LaForce – Sulley Bowman, Director HWMS Washington Office
  • Noah Masur – Buckley Williams of Federation for Digital Future; Male Aide
  • Jake Minevich – Victor Numerov of T&S; Chad Dockerly of Technica Publica
  • Skippy – Maggy, the Fury
  • Sarah Corbyn Woolf – Anna, once an Intern
