Mike Daisey is an author, monologist, and working artist. He has been performing his monologue “The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs” around the world for the last two years. His new monologue, “American Utopias,” is about the civic spaces in which many of us share our dreams of better worlds, from Disney World to Burning Man to Zuccotti Park. It premieres next month at the Chicago Humanities Festival. He lives on the web at mikedaisey.com.
