The Incomplete Manifesto...

from Bruce Mau Design has relevance to life, in general.

Like #39, for example:

Coffee breaks, cab rides, green rooms.
Real growth often happens outside of where we intend it to, in the interstitial spaces -- what Dr. Seuss calls "the waiting place." Hans Ulrich Obrist once organized a science and art conference with all of the infrastructure of a conference -- the parties, chats, lunches, airport arrivals — but with no actual conference. Apparently it was hugely successful and spawned many ongoing collaborations.
Enjoy the entire manifesto here.

According to wikipedia, a manifesto is "a public declaration of principles and intentions, often political in nature, but may also be life stance related. However, manifestos relating to religious belief are rather referred to as credo." (How's that for wikilinks? Almost every noun has a link. Are all those links useful? At what point are there too many links?)

If you were to write your own manifesto, what would it say? What would it be called? What would it look and sound like?
