Murphy's Law

PR News round up…

 PR Week’s US Edition is celebrating its fifth anniversary and has published a special issue which includes a look over the interesting trends over the past five years. It has also re-published an interview with Walt Mossberg of the WSJ from April this year.

  Meanwhile PR Week UK looks at the changing mobile phone market and a look at the problem of spam.

 Slashdot is a phenomenon. One mention on it’s boards will send tens of thousands of visitors to your website. But PR beware, any meekly veiled attempts at ghosted PR postings won’t cut the mustard. LinuxWorld has an interview with Slashdot’s founder Rob Malda which tackles how companies can deal with the volume of traffic you get from a mention on Slashdot.  However, there’s also some interesting background on the site and Rob’s thoughts on the Internet and some tips on what stories get posted and why.

 Interesting story from Florida on the importance of PR fostering more diversity by encouraging minority groups to participate in the profession.
