PR Snippets

The Holmes Report points out that Chris Komisarjevsky, CEO at Burson-Marsteller (and “one of the nicest guys in the PR business”) has been named at #8 in the New York Press�s list of the 50 Most Loathsome New Yorkers. It seems Chris was included because of the clients BM has represented – that’s a little harsh.

Ad Age has a detailed story on how the war is adversely hitting the PR business and the article includes quotes from various practitioners including Andy Cunningham who says: “she’s seeing more companies moving to work with smaller boutiques closer to home.”

Just as well she’s now working with a small boutique after leaving the large agency last week eh?

There’s also an interesting posting from Robin Miller at NewsForge about how the “Open Source” software movement requires centralized PR to promote the work it’s members are doing. 

The piece argues that while the beauty of open source development is that it includes people regardless of their location, the marketing of the movement requires a concerted effort.
