Trends: The Cluetrain Manifesto

In Trends on December 8, 2009 at 2:15 pm

TEN YEARS AFTER THIS LITTLE BOOK first came out, it makes more sense now than ever before. Why? Just start reading down the list of its “95 Theses” and you’ll wonder how someone from 1999 knew about Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, Wikipedia, blogs, craigslist, texting and a host of other social media and networking tools that are changing education, business, and life in general. The Cluetrain Manifesto is a fresh breeze from the past that will swirl up from behind and graze your ear with secrets of the future. Don’t stand on the track for long, though. That breeze is coming from a train that’s been catching up with you for the better part of a decade. Implications for education? You bet! But you’ll have to connect the dots yourself…read the entire text of the book here (for free – courtesy of authors Levine, Locke, Searls and Weinberger), or better to get the brand-new 10th Anniversary edition from Amazon ($16.47 hardcover or $13.18 on Kindle).
