Murphy's Law

Tom Murphy

A tired little posting…

  • Currently in Seattle for the second time in as many weeks. That flight from Copenhagen (where I fly backwards for two hours before I start) isn’t getting any shorter… Used the flight to catch up on my PR podcast listening. There’s a lot of great content out there. [For Immediate Release, Phil Gomes’ earShot, Inside PR, Across the Sound, Spinfluencer, and that’s just a few…] Get listening….
  • You know Colin McKay’s post would be very funny if it wasn’t so close to the bone. Which do you identify with?
  • Given the continuing, and many would say increasing importance of the written word, I’m always on the look out for interesting content whether it’s the fantastic Eats, Shoots & Leaves, or Bill Bryson’s Made in America. Ilja van Roon has brought together his writing experiences into one tome which is available for free download.
  • PC World has published a list of the worst twenty five technology products of all time. Though as Jim Horton reminds us, behind every bad product is an enthusiastic PR person!
  • One of my alma maters, Text 100 now has a blog edited by Georg Kolb, well they’ve had it since last October but I’ve only just found it. Sad times when you can’t even make the blogroll at a former employer, though like Aedhmar’s they seem to be going for the jet set.
  • Finally everyone keeps asking me for a list of the Web 2.0 products and services I use to remain at the cutting edge of blogging, PR 2.0, Web 2.1 (2.0 is so yesterday)… no I’m lying, no one has asked, however since I see more and more people writing these ridiculous posts as if they’re gatekeepers to a secret underworld I had to write this paragraph. It’s interesting that none of them have included Kool-Aid in their lists… I think this paragraph probably confirms which of Colin McKay’s categories I fit into.
