HOW TO piss off Nokia without leaving your chair

hi everybody,

the Nokia corporation just launched a new online marketing campaign. it is an alternate reality game named "conspiracy for good". in the game users take part in some kind of ersatz struggle against a fictitious corporation named "blackwell briggs" which is supposed to sell surveillance technology to governments.

now nokia does just that. they sold technology to intercept communications of iranian protesters to the government of iran.

see wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nokia_Siemens_Networks#Controversy

fortunately this bigotted marketing shit can be easily attacked. the game just launched a week ago or so and there arent many users and content yet. we can now have a significant impact in a critical early stage of their marketing campaign.

it takes only 5 minutes.

1. get an anonymous email address
2. sign up at http://www.conspiracyforgood.com/
3. post in a forum or create a cause and link to the wikipedia article (or use http://tinyurl.com/NokiaIsBlackwellBriggs) or do some other creative thing
4. repeat

have fun.
