Transcription

John Hurley as the head deity (set amid ancient Greek statuary, and the Greek gods looking down on the world; all are dressed as a chorus of minor Greco-Roman deities, the equivalent of our managerial stratum): "People, people today’s agenda -- the information age."

Chorus--"What happened to the Industrial age?"

Head: "That was last century."

Chorus--Those were the days. You built it you sold it

Head--No more living in the past
Today it’s not just what you make it’s what you know that matters

Single man--He always gets so proactive around the millennium

Head: "All I know is they need help communicating down there." [points downward at a white collar worker]..."He just quit and years of knowledge are going out the doorway."

Chorus--Isn’t there a way to capture what he knows?

Head--Over there she’s got thousands of documents on the network

Group--Finding out what she needs should be simpler

Head: "He’s got half a good idea over there . She’s got the other half."

Chorus--We get the picture

Single man--What are we supposed to do about it?

Head--"Make it simpler for people to exchange idea."

"Share documents"

"Have conversations"

Head--"Right, so they create knowledge they can use."

Chorus--They’ll need a digital office
With New software
New hardware

Head--"Relax, I’ve got us a partner down there."

Chorus--But they only make

Head-- Not anymore they don’t

Chorus--ohhhhhhhh

Male voiceover: Keep the conversation going
Share the knowledge
The digital document company
Xerox
