My recollections of Cluetrain Manifesto, which, to be fair, I didn't read thoroughly:
"the problem I have with Cluetrain is that it discards the centralized PR power of corporations as irrelevant; even with the internet, corporations still prevail as far as telling their story"

It contains some good points, but the writing (and writer?) is cloudy, self-aggrandizing, and overgeneralized and that really takes the edge off of the essay. It reminds of those Extreme Programming books which say the same thing over and over again, chapter after chapter, volume after volume, when the point could be succinctly summarized on an index card.
