One of the blogerati’s heavyweights weighed in today on how amazing the Cluetrain Manifesto is, and how clueless VW is for not understanding its inner most workings. “If I were you, VW, I would hold a contest to get people to create the best damned VW commercial anywhere and promise to spend big bucks to […]
