World Of Ends is a new site from Doc Searls and David Weinberger. It's not another Cluetrain Manifesto, though it's probably going to be as important.

What it is is a simple description of what the net is, and what people want to use it for. As they say:

The Nutshell
1. The Internet isn't complicated.</br> 2. The Internet isn't a thing. It's an agreement.</br> 3. The Internet is stupid.</br> 4. Adding value to the Internet lowers its value.</br> 5. All the Internet's value grows on its edges.</br> 6. Money moves to the suburbs.</br> 7. The end of the world? Nah, the world of ends.</br> 8. The Internet’s three virtues:</br> - a. No one owns it</br> - b. Everyone can use it</br> - c. Anyone can improve it</br> 9. If the Internet is so simple, why have so many been so boneheaded about it?</br> 10. Some mistakes we can stop making already.</br>
And what's more - it's all in language suitable for media company executives...

More likely just headlines with no lines under them... (Can't get to the site at the moment so haven't seen it yet...)

It got mentioned on Slashdot, nuff said.

Hopefully things will have calmed down by now.

Re: The Nutshell
Wonderful stuff. I just wish that David Blunkett would read it (or have someone read it to him) when he re-introduces (as he will) regulations under the RIP to seize people's browser records and invigilate their e-mail traffic.
