me, 2.0: jose nazario
beauty and the street
i like this one because it is like a run down, space age pantheon.
in my line of work i've done a bunch of marketing stuff lately: talks,
talk to the press, etc ... one of the things i tend to gravitate towards
is studying mechanisms designed to control the conversation. propoganda
training manuals, for example. one of the other things that has me curious
lately is how to handle an interview, especially a hostile one (where the
interviewer wants you to say things that may get you in trouble or look
bad). i suspect that mechanisms to help defeat interrogations can help.
to that end, i found a couple of wierd links that you may find interesting.
the first is a mini-course on how to resist police interrogation
techniques from "The Left Right Debate". interesting stuff, and probably
worth reading (not that i expect to be interrogated by the police ...)
another very interesting find is The Sinn
Fein/IRA Green Book 2 and how to deal with anti-interrogation, although
i'm not entirely sure of the authenticity.
i think the best lesson to learn from these documents (and really any
anti-interrogation technique) is that the stress is only temporary and
that you have control over what you're saying. i don't expect a reporter
to cuff me, threaten or deliver pain, or play terrible mind games, but
it's all a game in the end and the end result is the same: everyone's
