"Cluetrain at Fifteen" The document that started it all. +Doc Searls http://feedly.com/e/xfp1XfWL 
I started writing for Linux Journal as a contributing editor in 1996 (here's one piece), and went full-time 1998, not long before I began co-writing The Cluetrain Manifesto with Chris Locke, David Weinberger and Rick Levine. The Cluetrain website went up in March 1999, and we finished writing the book at the end of August 1999.

"Thinking outside the pipes" via +Doc Searls http://feedly.com/e/7STp1GOc

... if we think the Net is just another ‘medium,’ we’re missing its real value as a simple and cost-free way to connect everybody and everything. This is what we meant in The Cluetrain Manifesto when we said ‘markets are conversations.’ Conversations are also not media. They are the main way humans connect with each other and share knowledge. The Internet extends that ability to a degree without precedent in human history. There is no telling how profound a change—hopefully for the better—this will brings to our species and the world we live in.

I choose kindness. So does +Mika Epstein and +Andrea Rennick. Do you?
 
I've personally found this to work very well for me. "You might consider treating people with kindness merely because you can. Regardless of what they choose to do in response, this is what you choose to do. Because you can."

Yes. I make a practice of making direct eye contact with the people serving me through a drive through window, thanking them, and wishing them a good day. They are providing a valuable service to me. They are not invisible. Slow down. Connect. Be kind.
It's not overrated, it's not out of date, and it's something you need to do in all things.

+MaAnna Stephenson knocks it out of the park! A timely post on a day I am feeling sick and tired of users. "Why Free, Generic Advice is Worth What You Pay For It" http://feedly.com/e/y4bF7HM6
Every day I pop into groups, communities, and forums to help answer questions. Most all come from site owners who want to pick an expert’s brain for free.

I think it's a rite of passage all new site owners, and helpers, have to go through before we move to a better way of doing things. Good to know we're not alone. Thanks for sharing!
