revisiting The Cluetrain Manifesto
has "social networking" lost its way? (LOL)
Some people seem to think I'm some sort of marketing guy -- or once was. Not really. Here's the part of the book I'm most proud of, even today. It's from my first chapter, Internet Apocalypso.Conspiracy theory, my ass. Schools and teachers, the motor vehicle bureau, the IRS, the military, the line at the bank, the television set, the newspapers at the checkout stand, the news on your radio, the billboards along the highway, and now a hundred thousand cold-comfort Web sites. All are tuned to your brain at the deepest level and you have lined up for the coolest, latest-model implant. The carrier wave has been tuned at huge cost to deliver a single message: you are not free, you desire nothing but the products we produce, you have no world but the world we give you.
