  • Tanya Corrin [title unknown]
    Who is Tanya Corrin? Faust? Mephistopheles? Or just some sweet young thing trapped in the maw of a digital monster? She loved Josh Harris. Or at least she thought she did. And wasn't the New York art scene and that 45 million dollars in Jupiter Metrix stock irresistible? What's too high a price to pay for fame, fortune, and love? Living in a nightmare of surveillance cameras with a boyfriend slowly descending into madness--was that too high a price to pay? Or was it when the watchers, the unseen internet kibbutzers clicking away in a chorus of moral opprobrium, moved in for the kill? What did she really need? A Volvo station wagon and two kids in the suburbs? Or did she just need to be left alone?moreless

    Harvesting Me
    Episode 3
    The new millennium came without disaster. No end of the world. No nothing. Nevertheless, Josh Harris, Internet entrepreneur and aspiring artist, has decided that the 2nd coming is at hand. And "the new Messiah" is none other than Gilligan, that's right, that Gilligan, from Gilligan's Island. He does not mean the actor playing Gilligan. He is just an avatar for the divine Gilligan, preaching before his descent to earth.

    For Harris, life is a sad tug-of-war between those who control reality and those controlled by it. The weapon is media. And Harris, in an all-out onslaught on the world, has decided to make his own torpid existence into a new religion by asking a question that has never been asked before and has yet to be answered: is Gilligan really God -- or in Josh's lingo, Messiah 2.0?moreless
