Cluetrain comes to Dublin

Doc Searls rolls into Dublin to address Linux World Ireland during the ICT Expo and for anyone who read The Cluetrain Manifesto, the Coming of Doc is akin to a personal reading of the Manifesto. Searls always has insightful perspectives--on topics as wide-ranging as ecosystems, marketing, computers and visual art. When listing to his anecdotes, it's no wonder that his book is on the shelves of other quality writers.

A magazine editor friend of Micah Sifry asked for some notes on the subject of the Internet and dissent. As he explains,

Along the way, this thought occurred to me. If it's true that, as the New Yorker cartoon put it, "On the Internet, no one knows if you're a dog," it's also true that on the Internet no one likes it if you don't come across as a human being.

In other words, The Cluetrain Manifesto explained while standing on one foot.

I wonder how Searls would take that perspective.
