Just curious scareduck. If cluetrain is so 1999 what is 2002?
Meaningful content. Actual, not pro forma, profits. In investment terms, Warren Buffet, not Jeff Bezos. Cluetrain is, in the words of John Dvorak [pcmag.com],
written by a cast of characters who were apparently caught up in the dot-com scene at its peak, [who] managed to capture in one book almost all of the lunatic fringe dingbat thinking that characterized the Internet boom.
You should all be concerned that Cluetrain is apparently required reading over at the Googleplex, especially if you are one of the many around here who believe that Google exists to feed you free traffic. Those of you claiming that this bilge is "deeply important", please read Dvorak's column, paying particular attention to his apt analogy to the 70's hipster philosophy-cum-cult of est.
