The Commonwealth Club at 595 Market St. SF Bay Area
Event Type Protest
You may have heard about the Fakester Revolution through the recent SF Weekly article. (If not, you can look at our website and its "news" links to read tons of press coverage about us: All culture jammers, freedom of expression activists, Cacophonists, and exhibitionists -- your help is needed for a Mass Fakester Manifestation in meatspace! This will be an art action and protest (hooray!) against Friendster at a public appearance by notoriously humorless Friendster CEO Jon Abrams (hissss!) in San Francisco on the eve of Thurs., Sept. 4th between 6pm and 7pm at the Commonwealth Club at 595 Market St., to agitate for our rights to use artificial identities on their site. It will a street party of noise, color, masks and silly hats! We'll be blasting yuppies (not to mention Jon and his dot-cronies!) with our frightening wit as they enter the event. Let us join forces to make the gray masses laugh and think! Here is the event which we plan to protest: (Scroll down to the "Urban Singles" event on this page if the link does not take you directly to the correct spot.) Although the protest will only last an hour, a bout of raucous socializing and drinking will follow at a local watering hole -- that means that this is also the FIRST OFFICIAL FAKESTER PARTY! We need to hear from interested parties by e-mail ASAP in order to pass along further details. Contact: Join the Party!
