We know they’re coming down. In the Kingdom of Apps, we are users, not makers. It has also been pointed out that the work’s predictions have largely failed to materialize. Participation in a networked market changes people fundamentally. The boundaries that separate our conversations look like the Berlin Wall today, but they’re really just an annoyance. The manifiesto cluetrain of the world cluetrsin web that is supposedly eliminating the need for face-to-face contact has actually done the opposite, it is forcing organizations like companies to cater manifiesto cluetrain the most human of needs The End of Business as Usual in The ability of the internet to manifiseto to clueteain information — maniviesto which might exist beyond the formal hierarchy of organizational structure or published material from such an organization — acts as a means of subverting, or bypassing, manifiwsto hierarchies.

Apparently knowing how to find one another interesting is not as easy as it looks. Can they come out and play?

And whether the news is good or bad, they tell everyone. Command and control are met with hostility by intranetworked knowledge workers and generate distrust in internetworked markets. The Cluetrain Manifesto was re-published as an extended 10th Anniversary Edition in As a result, markets are getting smarter, more informed, more organized.



InTim Berners-Lee used the Net to create a gift he gave freely to us all: When we’re not busy being your “target market,” many of us are your people. To traditional corporations, networked conversations may appear confused, may sound confusing.

We will not settle for the 4-color brochure, for web sites chock-a-block with eye candy but lacking any substance. We want to talk to you. The manifiesti we use to connect to the Internet are not the Internet. But first, they must belong to a community.


With a probability approaching absolute certainty, we are going to be sorry we didn’t do more to keep data out of the hands of our governments and corporate overlords. Have you noticed that, in itself, money is kind of one-dimensional and boring? But most dangerous of all is the third horde: It clietrain been sixteen years since our previous communication.

We are immune to advertising. We want to talk to customers directly in manifieto own voices, not in platitudes written into a script. It can’t be “picked up” at some tony conference. These corporate singularities are dangerous not because they are evil. Corporations do not speak in the same voice as these new networked conversations. They recognize each other’s voices.

So if you’re inviting people over for a swim, post the rules.

Do you hear that, Security for Privacy trade-off? As tools, they are broken.

A horde is an undifferentiated mass of people. But learning to speak in a human voice is not some trick, nor will corporations convince us they are human with lip service about “listening to customers. About Fifteen years ago, four of us got together and posted The Cluetrain Manifesto which tried to explain what most businesses and much of the media were getting wrong about the Web. Most corporations, on the other hand, only know how to talk in the soothing, humorless monotone of the mission statement, marketing brochure, and your-call-is-important-to-us busy signal.


The Cluetrain Manifesto

Intranets naturally tend to route around boredom. You want to know what to buy? Optimizing the Internet for one purpose de-optimizes it for all others.

Long live the open Internet. The best are built bottom-up by engaged individuals cooperating to construct something far more valuable: If willingness to get out of the way is taken as a measure of IQ, then very few companies have yet wised up. We have real power and we know it. They should be applauded for that. Through the Internet, people are discovering and inventing new ways to share relevant knowledge with blinding speed. Support the businesses that truly “get” the Web.

The Internet is not a thing any more than gravity is a thing. So much for corporate rhetoric about adding value to commoditized products.
