Hello everyone, thank you for reading my manifesto on world domination. Here is the first-ever Art of Nonconformity video update!
I should warn you first that this is good (I think) but not great. My friend Ken, the amazing videographer, brought all this crazy stuff to my apartment and we did the whole thing in two takes. Watching it later, I can see a few things I could do better for next time, so don’t worry– if you guys like it, we’ll do some more.
This 6-minute video includes:
- Why I wrote the manifesto
- Who I’m writing for
- More about the two most important questions in the universe
- Close-ups of my ‘James Bond style’ duplicate U.S. passport
- My upcoming trip to Bulgaria, Mongolia, etc.
One funny story– the video starts a bit abruptly, and that is totally my fault (not Ken’s). We filmed a short introduction where I said who I am, where I live, etc… but when I watched it later, I hated it. I didn’t want to bother Ken with bringing all his gear over to my house again, so I just asked him to edit the first bit out.
Hopefully if you’re watching, you know a little bit about me already and don’t need the first part. If not, no worries– here’s an updated introduction.
OK, here you go– click the “Play” button to start it up.

After reading the manifesto, please leave your comments over here. If you have comments about the video, that’s fine too– leave them here below this post.
Bloggers of the World, I Need Your Help
As I say in the video, if you have a blog or other web site and judge the report to be of greater attention, I would really appreciate a link so that your readers can learn how to take over the world too. I will be featuring some of the reviews and site mentions in an upcoming resource page.
You can link directly to the manifesto at http://chrisguillebeau.com/3×5/a-brief-guide-to-world-domination or directly to the home page, where we will soon be featuring a permanent link to the guide and the forthcoming resource page.
I am grateful for all the links and discussion that are already taking place around the internet– thank you!
