Tom, enjoyed your post. I think (new) PR and news releases are still driven by the same goals. We simply have moved beyond old labels to what is better described as "social PR" and social news releases. The news release now is only one of a bigger set of tools and social channels we can use to go direct to key targets. Way more exciting than spraying and praying.

Mike, I really enjoyed your point of view and reflections on Transmedia. It's true when you talk about "Transmedia" with the average person, their eyes roll, their face goes blank and the curtain drops. We need to tell them something meaningful without falling into the trap of making Transmedia an exclusive club that no one else can join; because they don't speak the secret technical lingo or know the secret technology handshakes.

 

It's kind of like the description of "social business." We throw it out there but nobody knows what it is until you say Amazon and Zappos are good examples. We'll always win when we can show an example and say "it's like this or it's like that."

Steve, enjoyed your post. Wondering about the date for the mobile market stats? Surely you meant 2011, not 2001? @SteveOlenski
