- If you're a Bostonian, or in the area on November 11th, check out the Boston Panel Discussion on Blogging. Looks like a good group of bloggers, and should be really good info for those that want to learn more. And, congrats to the BoSox.
- Publicity is always so interesting. The former publicist for Tatum and Ryan O'Neill sent out a press release to say that he has "no comment" on Tatum's Book, A Paper Life. If he hadn't sent that release, well, I guess he wouldn't have been able to coast and get some publicity for his firm.
- Dan Forbush, of Profnet fame, has pushed MediaInsider as a blog-only onto the scene. Publicity is always so interesting. Maria Perez - a very nice, funny woman who's from
- is the day-to-day overseer of the content. Tell her I said hi, and to buy a plant, for Pete's sake! Spain
- Corante launches Flackster, with some very long posts by Michael O'Connor Clarke. With this launch, Corante gets to beat Weblogs, Inc. to the punch (who had an ad on Craigslist looking for an ad/PR blogger), as well as MediaBistro's noting it's wish to buy a PR blogger.
Auburnprofessor, Robert French, has "skinned" his InfOpinions site, offering two different versions of the Website. It's very cool.
- Maybe FHM and Maxim aren't so cool anymore. AZ-based magazine, Razor, has been biting at the circulation numbers of them, and getting some good recognition for it. Richard's a nice guy, and you gotta love Wendy.
- Because there's no NHL season, I need to get my hockey fix somehow. USA Hockey hires a new PR director. I didn't know the job was open! That would have been so cool.
- Tons of technology magazines are re-launching, just to give us a case of the willies, or deja vu. One of the two. So, say hello to Red Herring Pt II, Always On (or Red Herring original people, Pt II), The Deal ... oh, there are probably more, I just haven't read about them yet.
Let's hope none are asinine enough to the play the roof party game that one dot-com publication (that thought it was a standard to something) liked to do all the time.
Never did understand why they just didn't transition them into roof jumping parties when the times imploded.
- And, just a reminder, photos on the Internet tend to be there forever. Not something you want to show the grandkids in 50 years, Blogger goats, is it?
