A few years ago a
colleague pointed me to ChangeThis, a
site that publishes author submitted manifestos about business, politics,
technology, and change.  

Why write a
manifesto? “We’re betting that a
significant portion of the population wants to hear thoughtful, rational,
constructive arguments about important issues” (from the ChangeThis Manifesto).

Some of my favorite manifestos: 

Tom Peters, management
expert, has several, but I love:The ‘PSF’ is Everything!

Ben McConnell and Jackie Huba,
customer evangelism and word of mouth marketing experts: The Customer Evangelist

Guy Kawasaki, described on
ChangeThis as a “former Apple Fellow and entrepreneur extraordinaire”: The Art of the Start 

Bob Sutton, a professor of
Management Science and Engineering at Stanford Engineering School: Management Advice: Which 90% is Crap?

David Maister, a leading
authority on the management of professional service firms: Strategy and the Fat

You can download
manifestos, distribute them, and quote them. The idea behind the free dissemination of manifestos is to “challenge
the way ideas are created and spread”.

They’re short, easy to
read, and loaded with great perspective.  

You can submit a proposal yourself or vote on proposals.

Go take a look!
