This is a copy of this proposal:
During last year's manifesto class, I ended up writing this: http://www.wired.com/beyond_the_beyond/2010/05/the-facebook-suicide-bomb-manifesto/
(Now, I still have a Facebook account and I use it probably every day, so I'm obviously ambivalent about the text!)
Sometime this summer, I'd like to meet for one afternoon - or maybe a night would be better - so that we could read the text out loud, talk about our individual and collective needs to both use and escape from Facebook, to review the various strategies that have been proposed (Seppukoo and Web 2.0 Suicide Machine), and finally to spend a couple hours trying out (together! as a group!) a bunch of Facebook Suicide (Bombs).
Maybe it fails and all our accounts are revoked? Maybe Facebook's already programmed a way to absorb such an action and put us in some digital bin, apart from more rational conversation? Maybe we sober up and realize we love Facebook after all? Maybe we'll take down the site from our little shopfront!?
So that's the proposal: a discussion and then a workshop-performance-research-action (where the discussion continues, but in a different way).
