CliodossierWe just received a “top secret” package from the Creative Liberation Intelligence Organization, including reconaissance photos (like the one here) and dot-matrix-printed info about shady characters and other “sensitive data.” The letter explains: “We have released this classified material to demonstrate that we are, indeed, all-knowing and all-powerful and that this is not some thinly veiled attempt by an advertising award show to get you to enter your best work from the past year.” Yes, the “secret” C.L.I.O. site is part of the call for entries for the Clio Awards. The fake spy stuff on the site is pretty comprehensive and, in places, fun to play around with. Maybe President Bush is on to something with this whole domestic spying thing.
