- Advertising versus Public Relations. Okay, I was going through my Sitemeter stats - okay, it was a blego weekend, but I also read Sitemeter to find links to other interesting things - I found this pretty good article on About.com. What is written reminds me of what the late, great Fred Hoar used to say about advertising and public relations: it's pay for play versus pray for play.
- PR Blogosphere ... uncovered! Mike Manuel at Media Guerrilla breaks it down for a few PR bloggers, and who is posting the most. Matthew Podboy of Active Voice then breaks it down in the comment section on how much billable time is probably wasted on blogging.
In defence of the POP! PR blog, I post either in the morning or the end of the day, and I think that the Snippets should be broken down per bullet points. ;)
- Sun, the America's Cup and Andy Lark. Like I wrote earlier, I was checking the links through Sitemeter. And, I found Sun's Andy Lark linked to my post on Ogilvy & Mather UK.
The cool thing - beyond the link from Lark - is that Sun aggregates its bloggers on Planet Sun. This, to me, is a corporation that gets it. While Planet Sun is not a product or publication of Sun Microsystems, it is a great example of a corporation getting it.
The other thing is to check out Andy Lark's puppy and sailing photos. Through his blog, I did find a link to the next America's Cup, and I am so stoked. I love the baseball caps, that "there will be no second."
Is Sun sponsoring a sailboat?!? Can I get a Sun/America's Cup baseball cap?!?
- Who the heck are these people? Finally, a smart social networking site - Meet the Neighbors. This seems to be a better idea for New York or Los Angeles, but not sure how it would work in suburbia.
Not sure, though, what the business model and revenue stream is, but I think this is a better bet than Friendster.
