The New Cluetrain Manifesto

Episode #451 of Six Pixels of Separation - The Mirum Podcast is now live and ready for you to listen to.

If ever there was a book written about what marketing "could" be, it would be The Cluetrain Manifesto. The book was published in 2000 and presented 95 theses organized around the Internet, culture, society and business (it also happens to be one of my my most loved books). Many point to this book as the genesis of social media. Many recite the infamous "markets are conversations" line from it. The truth is that many don't really understand the depth, value and insights that the book delivers. It's amazing to look at the content of this book - in 2015 - to see how much of it has come true... and how far we still have to go. It's something that two out of the four original authors have been thinking a lot about. Doc Searls and David Weinberger put together New Clues. It is 121 more theses authored for 2015. While, Rick Levine and Chris Locke opted out of taking another kick at the can, Searls and Weinberger provide much more fodder for all of us to think about. Technology has - without question - moved at an exponential pace, so it's interesting to see what these two think needs to happen next. Enjoy the conversation...
