The Randomworx Manifesto

RandomWorx is a virtual corporation where creative, intelligent individuals form consortiums that strive to expand the boundaries of the human experience through online communications, marketing, and organizational technologies.

We believe the authoritarian model of the employer/employee relationship is extinct. Leadership is not about the ability of the leader to manipulate people; instead, it is the ability to give creative professionals a common goal, then clear the path for them to be able to do their very best work.

RandomWorx seeks to be one of those at the forefront of this evolution, where new methods of conducting business will become more focused on the value of personal relationships between the companies associates and its customers, and that the new laws of expanding returns will bring added value to the lives of everyone involved with the company and its products.

With no central office, each of our team maintains his or her own office in a location of their choosing. Each associate communicates with other team members via online technologies, sometimes ones we have created. We will never subject our team to the insane and demeaning practices of cubicles, daily commutes, office politics, valueless middle managers, or any other current business practices that have made the cartoon character Dilbert a considerable success.

Passion is one of life’s greatest thrills, be it the passion for another, for some great work or a noble cause. We seek to encourage a love for endeavors great and small, as the amount of emotion one feels in one’s life is in direct proportion to his or her quality of existence. We also recognize that passion does not equal drama.

It is a sad fact that, as Thoreau said, “The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation,” due to their inability to discover, express and act upon their dreams, or the ideas of others. We wish to help those who work with us and those who use and or enjoy our products to follow their dreams or the dreams of others they believe in.

Achieving a long-sought-after goal can be as much a curse as a blessing if the person arriving at success is not adequately prepared for the pressures success can bring, or if the motivations for achieving that success were not healthy for the successor or those involved with the fight. Therefore we seek to teach individuals and ourselves about the inevitable positives and negatives that come with success.

It is one thing to finish anything you have started. It is yet another entirely different matter to finish something and be at peace with yourself and the universe for the knowledge that you have done, without question, your very best at the task. This sometimes means that money and time are lost in the battle, but these are mere trinkets when compared to the satisfaction that comes to the creator and his or her audience of a great piece of work.

Knowledge and inspiration must be given the environment to flourish and be exchanged freely, without intervention, censuring, or strings from governments, religious leaders, and un-healthily ambitious individuals.

On the internet, we see all of humanity, good, bad, ugly, perfect, vile, and holy. We believe that the freedom to see all of humanity will lead more people to seek that which will elevate themselves and others and to shun that which will degrade and destroy. Therefore, the internet deserves the highest protection that any court, government, army, or people can give it, to protect it from those that seek to convert its power to their own. This includes the media that seeks to turn into another form of television, the governments that seek to turn it into a propaganda machine, and individuals that wish to control it through software and hardware for their profit.
