Alright, we've had it! We're ready for a throw down. Yesterday was that last straw. Yesterday, we were informally presenting a concept to a major studio and one of their juniors compared us to Steve Rubel. Arrrrgh.
Okay, enough. With all due respect to the folks over at Ad Age, we do NOT think Rubel's geeky blog should even be listed in the Power 150, let alone rank at the top of online PR.
So... inspired by the Pepsi Challenge, we’ve decided to turn this into a little bit of a taste test. We’d like to hear from you our viewers as to your preferences. Full bodied or artificial; Great taste or less filling. Take the blog poll and pick one.
SURVEY RESULTS 9/21
We’ve now closed the voting and here are the results:
Well, there are a number of ways to interpret the findings:
1) It appears that 3 out of 4 PR practitioners now prefer Strumpette over Micro Persuasion. Certainly, it appears that what scientists were saying was nearly immeasurable less than two years ago, the capacity for critical thinking in PR is increasing significantly.
2) Alternatively, one could make the argument that Peter Pan-like sexually ambiguous SEO geeks have infiltrated the business and now account for a little more than a quarter of the body politic. If that trend continues, within five years the PR industry could be reduced almost entirely to podcasting virtual fashion shows in Second Life.
