As a storyteller, monologist Mike Daisey certainly has a keen eye for the unusual, and as a contributor to WIRED, his ability to tap into the zeitgeist is evident in this two-part Symposium on Modern Living. The first day's program, The Pleasures of Technology, at Mac-maniac central Tekserve, addresses topics ranging from the addictive draw of Apple equipment and the maddening void of tech support to the unavoidable influence of technology in everyday living. Tomorrow, follow Daisey to McNally Robinson Booksellers, where he switches gears to discuss The Terrors of Literature, tracing the irreplaceable sway of text throughout our convoluted lives.
