A project exploring the time-period surrounding the privatisation of the state owned telecommunications company Telecom Éireann (Eircom) in 1999. The work examines the event from the viewpoint of the disenfranchised small shareholders as communicated on early online forums. The film contextualises this within emerging ideologies of technological emancipation in the pre millennium period.

The film is funded by a project award from the Arts Council, the development was funded by a Rapid Residency Award from Science Gallery. The film was presented at an aemi Rough Cut event in September.
