- "Blog" makes the dictionary. Millions of blogger heads swell up with self-importance, then explode, leaving the blogosphere empty.
I continue to drink my 64 oz bottle of Odwalla OJ to fight a cold at home.
- MSN Spaces Launches. And, the blogosphere goes nuts.
I just launched my own MSN Spaces blog for POP! PR, just to test it out and play with it. I see that Robert Scoble, the MSFT evangelist, isn't going to switch over just yet. But, I think that's fine - from what I have been reading and playing with so far, MSN Spaces isn't for hardcore bloggers.
To me, MSN Spaces is going after the My Space, Live Journal and, well, Blogger space - people that want to write about their lives (okay, 14 year old girls on some level), but quite easily through the integration with MSN Messenger.
I give it a thumbs up - I think it'll give those services a run for their money and carve out a nice niche for itself. It seems pretty easy to use, it has some nice MSN IM integration, as well as mobile integration.
I just don't expect to see tons of corporate blogs built on the platform.
- How ethical is it to send XMas gifts to the media?
Yesterday, on the leading morning news in Phoenix - Good Morning Arizona - Dan Davis commented that a local PR firm (okay, they are more like wannabe publicists) had sent everyone at the station a gift ... but him.
Now, Dan's being doing TV here for 25 years. He's an Emmy winner, he's very personable and professional. I don't see him commenting on not getting a gift because he was upset that he didn't but more as a putdown of the firm and the ethics of giving gifts.
How tacky, though, that they forgot him.
So, readers ... what are your thoughts?
