Markets are conversations. Their members communicate inlanguage that is natural, open, honest, direct, funny and oftenshocking. Whether explaining or complaining, joking or serious,the human voice is unmistakably genuine. It cant be faked.Most corporations, on the other hand, only know how to talk inthe soothing, humorless monotone of the mission statement,marketing brochure, and your-call-is-important-to-us busysignal. Same old tone, same old lies. No wonder networkedmarkets have no respect for companies unable or unwilling tospeak as they do.But learning to speak in a human voice is not some trick, norwill corporations convince us they are human with lip serviceabout "listening to customers." They will only sound humanwhen they empower real human beings to speak on theirbehalf. the Cluetrain Manifesto
