Re: <nettime> honest work


Since this advert is for the Global Business Network, I think that the job
description should include:

* Uncritical belief in every idiocy of neo-liberal economics (aka free
market fundamentalism, la pensee unique, etc.);

* Total committment to transforming technological progress into
socio-economic regression;

* Blind faith in the imminent arrival of the 'Long Boom' even as the East
Asian economies implode;

* Absolute certainty that entering the twenty-first century is exactly the
same as returning to the eighteenth century;

* Never criticising the environmental damage and human rights abuses carried
out by Shell or any other sponsor of the GBN.

Any other suggestions from the nettime crew??

Later,

Richard
