Tell Us What You Really Think, Stowe

20 Jan ’07

Stowe delivers the rant of the year (yes, it’s only January, but it’s still a great rant) on the attempted hijacking of social media by PR. Pushing for candour from the capitalerati is a noble cause. The idea is doomed, of course – there’s just too much upper middle-class security at stake for anyone in BigAnything to take a genuine risk on sincerity. But it still quickens my pulse to read a great polemic – especially one that rings so true. Update: Brian Solis, who comments below, has posted a response to Stowe. Is this going to be one of those Sundays? Update 2: The Stowe has landed, and (hopefully) has the last word.
