I wonder how many people, as I did, found themselves thrown into confusion by
the death last week of Jean Ichbiah (pictured), inventor of Ada.
Learning that the inventor of a computer programming language is already old
enough to have lived 66 years (Ichbiah was 66 when he succumbed to brain
cancer) is a little like learning that your 11-year-old daughter has grown up
and left home or that the first car you ever bought no longer is legal
because it runs on gasoline in an age where all automobiles must run on
water. How can something as novel, as new, as a computing language possibly
already be so old-fangled that an early practitioner like Ichbiah can
already no longer be with us?
The thought was so disquieting that it took me immediately back to the last
time I wrote about Ichbiah, and indeed about Ada Lovelace for whom his
language was named. It was in the context ... (more)
Jump Start Your Online Public Relations for Free
They call it public relations for a reason. Although PR methodology has
focused primarily on getting the traditional media to write about your
company or your client’s company, the goal has always been to influence
‘the public’, that is those members of the population that you want to
Thanks to the infinite reach of the Internet, you have the capability to
extend that influence dramatically. But, you need to change your approach
and your toolkit as part of a 21st century PR strategy.
If your primary public relations strategy still amounts to sending press
releases to a finite number of media contacts, you fail to take advantage of
the Internet. You are not reaching the new influencers, to use Paul
You need to do do more than reach those influencers. You need to take

Last week I received an email from Lindsey Miller at Ragan Communications. I
answered her questions for a story she was working on here.
The following is the full text of my reply to her on this subject.
What kinds of PR firm will survive the "fast-approaching new media
avalanche"? What steps will firms have to take to ensure that they make it
I know a lot of PR firms that are chasing new accounts among publicly traded
companies, which are seen as cash cows in the business. I also know a lot of
firms whose sales teams are larger than their senior account staff which will
actually get the job done. These firms have armies of new college-grad
telemarketers spitting out press releases to the media.
For a while you can get away with both approaches. Once the laws, rules and
regulations change, the first group of PR firms will disapp... (more)

He’s tweeted twice so far, once that his nuts are on fire, and then
promising a phone call to a friend when he hits 100K followers, indicating
