We are just getting word so bear with us: The August 28 luncheon meeting of the Raleigh Public Relations Society (RPRS) apparently will now feature the winners of the 2007 Sir Walter Raleigh Awards for Excellence in Communication.
As you are aware, the Sir Walter Raleigh Awards competition is held annually by RPSR to showcase work by PRs throughout North Carolina.
The event is scheduled to happen between 11:45 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Bogart's American Grill, 510 Glenwood Avenue, in scenic downtown Raleigh. If you’re coming, please RSVP the lovely Kelly Hubbard, hospitality chair at firstname.lastname@example.org by this Friday.
Cost to attend is $12 for members and $20 for guests and is payable at the door.
EDITOR'S NOTE: Lunch is included in the price of admission. Attendees will have a choice of: Grilled Meatloaf with mashed potatoes, onion rings, and mushroom gravy; Grilled Tuna Salad served over fresh greens; and Chicken Salad Wrap served with fresh fruit.
Imagine for a moment that you can take any piece of online content that you care about - a news feed, an image, a box score, multimedia, a stream of updates from your friends - and easily pin it wherever you want. Once clipped, you can drop the content on your desktop, an online start page like Windows Live or Pageflakes, “the deck" of your mobile device or even “a crawl” on your Internet-connected television. This isn’t some far off vision. It’s the coming era of the Cut and Paste Web.
However, for all of its benefits, the Cut and Paste Web is potentially more disruptive to big traffic sites than Web 2.0 was. If almost all content can be lifted from one spot and placed somewhere where it’s more convenient to the user, just how will it be monetized? The ramifications reach far and wide. It will impact anyone that wants to attract eyeballs - media companies, brand marketers and community/social networking sites.
[But] don't wait. Start now to make everything on your website embeddable. Traffic is becoming something that happens elsewhere, not just on your site.

No real reason, he was just irritated by our teasing him about getting in bed with pornographer Joe Francis. Anyway, Ronn gave his obscenity-laced word that we'd see the complaint in 72 hours.
