I was at Seth's presentation this morning. To provide a little context for his comment about resumes, he was referring to this 2008 post in his blog:

See: http://sethgodin.typepad.com/seths_blog/2008/03/why-bother-havi.html

He acknowledged the blog post got him in a lot of hot water. His point today, as I understood it, was that we need to be proactive beyond the resume in seeking environments where we can be extraordinary.

The only rules I think Seth was calling to change were those that we impose on ourselves.

My personal takeaways from his comment:
1. Go beyond your resume and make connections in person. (Twitter, Linked-In, Facebook are great intro, but you don't get the passion in my voice)
2. Offer your desire to do extraordinary things
3. Make it a personal responsibility to be an agent of change
