So What?

How many times have I heard...

What's the bottom line?
Why do I care?
Where's the so what?

I'll tell you what.

no care
             no line

Miles of horn
A cold train base
A raspy symbol

and the so what.

Manifestos? What?

Manifestos seem to be hailing in an increasingly disturbing frequency and size in my neck of the woods. I've been seeing them everywhere. (Is that a hint?)

So what's a manifesto? I keep thinking Manifest destiny. EEEK!This is what Wikipedia says about manifesto (definitely not the same as mainfest destiny):
  • Latin root word: manifestum. Clear and concise
  • Comes to english from the Italian word "manifesto"
So manifesto is really Latain Italian word. Neat. In the business world we call this a vision or a mission statement. <Barf> and very helpful in the context of business, profit, and the pursuit of whatever.

As a manifesto I see these written in posters like Holstee's manifesto about "Life" or go check out these examples at Life Hack.

What's your manifest? What are you clear on? Here's mine:

Yeah. Blank slate. I'm contemplating. Help?
