Message delivered to CNBC! (Thanks, Adam!)
Last month, Boing Boing encouraged folks to "sign the open letter" at FixCNBC.com, which asked the network to hold Wall Street accountable instead of being in the tank for big corporations.
This FixCNBC site was built by Rebecca Malamud and Reddit co-founder Aaron Swartz, and was a project of the new Progressive Change Campaign Committee -- which primarily helps elect strong progressives to Congress. Over 20,000 people signed the letter.
The PCCC teamed up with some NYC comedians (including someone from the Onion) to deliver the letter to CNBC, and today the video of that delivery was released. It's good. Check it out!
(And if you haven't signed the letter to CNBC yet, you still can)
I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
