Don’t Kill the Press Release, Shoot the Messenger

Taking a step back from the highly publicized and globally viewed online game show series, “Get It or Don’t Get It,” I am still shaking my head wondering at what point the communications industry stopped paying attention to the need for evolution. Millions of bloggers (not to mention journalists) use traditional releases to write stories everyday. Customers read SEO press releases in Yahoo and Google to make decisions. The idea behind the new media release is to improve the foundation,…

DEMO 07 Though Pictures

I’m at DEMO – unofficially working with Ephraim Schwartz and Steve Fox of Infoworld. I’m snapping a ton of pictures and they’re running them in online stories and their DEMO slideshows. Pictures are worth a thousand words….so, I’ve decided to cover DEMO as more of a photo journalist than a live blogger. UPDATE: Here’s a link to the entire album of 300 pictures from the event. I’ll write a more formal review of the show – post DEMO unfortunately –…

PR in the Long Tail

In hispost, “Long Tail PR: how to do publicity without a press release (or the press),” ChrisAnderson asks “But what of the Long Tail of media–all those new influentials, from the micromedia of Techcrunch and Gizmodo to individual bloggers? And the social news aggregators like Digg and our own Reddit? They’re where the most powerful sort of marketing–word of mouth–starts, but most of them don’t want to hear from a PR person at all.” Exactly. Who wants to hear from…

PR2.0 Ranked as One of the Top Marketing Blogs

With all of the craziness and mind-numbing action associated with CES, I almost missed a couple of huge achievements for PR 2.0. It all started with Stumpette’s ranking of A-list PR blogs, where PR 2.0 ranked towards the top of the bunch based on Alexa rankings. Then a few days later, Todd And complied a list of the Power 150 Top Marketing Blogs, where PR2.0 has hovered in the 90s. This must have taken quite sometime to produce, so hats…

Microsoft PR Sparks a Blogstorm of Support and Outrage

Image Credit: istartedsomething.com I just read over on Techmeme that Microsoft PR may be digging itself deeper into another potential PR fiasco. There is a blogstorm out there with dozens of bloggers, myself included, casting opinions. Many of which I don’t necessarily agree with. I had to find out for myself, so I contacted several of the privileged bloggers who already have the notebook as well as other PR leaders to discuss the topic. Welcome to Crisis Communications 2.0.Microsoft’s intention…

Time Magazine, Web 2.0 and You

Nevermind Sacha Baron Cohen’s ability to make us laugh while holding up a mirror to our ugliest traits, Al Gore’s exposing platform to get millions inspired about environment, Sir Bono’s tireless work in Africa, Michael J. Fox’s spotlight on stem cell politics, Time Magazine’s person of the year this year is “you” or “us” depending on how you look at it. Let’s be clear. There is bottomless well of assholes around the world to spotlight and blame for the many…

San Francisco NewTech Meetup – December 2006

With over 700 members, the SF NewTech Meetup continues to gain in popularity as the Bay Area geekdom enjoys its forum for having new tech demoed directly to them each and every month. SF Win, Silicon Valley Newtech, among others provide a venue for emerging companies to reach a sampling of their target demographic, without having to exhibit at an expensive Web 2.0-style conference. Held at CNET on Second St. in San Francisco, SFNT hosted a crowd of about 100…
