How Random Babbling Becomes Corporate Policy

Okay, a few things.
First, Everything Jake is a web comic that has successfully sucked me in. Serial, with a gripping plotline and suspensful storytelling, with the needed dash of random sillyness to make it all worthwhile. (if you read as far as poke-x, you'll see what I mean). The first few months are weak, but I think the author didn't know what to do with the comic yet.

Secondly, there's been alot of talk in sos_usa about a potential protest of the Information Awareness Office (the people who bring you crucial, terrorist stopping products like "Total Information Awareness"- if you know what everyone is buying, watching, eating, and reading, you can control the minority that are going to be terrorists). Right now, the plan is somewhat hazy, but I'm all for it, and want to get some feedback from this direction:
December 21st, in the holiday season, is a big spending day. So we'll attack the wallets of Megacorps. TIA plans to track credit card expenditures- so don't use them. In fact, cancel your credit cards that you don't use that day. Don't go online, or to the library. Don't do anything that TIA would be planning to track.

It's a simple, easy, form of protest, and I think that properly shown to the community, we could actually accomplish something with it.

Tonight, I'm going to put together a pamphlet in pagemaker (if I still have it), and throw it online so people have something to hand out.
