The Week's Best, 10 December 2007

A rather momentous occurence in the PR blogosphere this week, and I bet most of you missed it: we actually generated debate among U.S. PR educator/bloggers. A tipping point, perhaps? In honor of this long-awaited event, this week I'm highlighting great posts from PR educators. Enjoy!

Why I Don't Trust Marketing, Bill Sledzik and Why I Don't Trust PR "Purists": A Friendly Reply to Bill Sledzik, Bob Batchelor
The PR Campaign, Battle Stations Everyone!, Gary Schlee
Corporate Bloggers Organize into the "Blog Council," Les Potter
Facebook Beacon Timeline and Analysis, Mihaela Vorvoreanu
EuroBlog2008: Call for Papers, Philip Young
College Admissions Embrace Social Media, Nora Barnes
Forward Podcast 37 Live: What Are You Doing to Address Globalization?, live podcast with PR educators Richard Bailey and Robert French on Sat., Dec. 15

And a couple of other posts of particular interest for students:
Why Writing Like a College Student Will Kill You Online, Brian Lash
Edelman Online Behavior Policies and Procedures

Labels: , ,

The conversations were awesome to read while I was teaching this weekend. Students got a kick from seeing the tools in action!
"we actually generated debate among U.S. PR educator/bloggers."

Now, now, the very best of my knowledge Gary Schlee (actually, this one I know 100 per cent!), Philip Young and Richard Bailey aren't American....

Indeed, an interesting debate. Fits in nicely with the Euroblog 2008 call for papers, which you've highlighted.

Lauren, hope you're having fun grading.

Judy, the debate was Bill and Bob. The rest were just great posts. ;-)
Hi Karen, Bill and I have talked and agree that the distinctions between us are minor. But, this is a big topic and I hope more people join in.

Thanks for posting it.

Bob, I'm just excited that there are now enough of us to have even minor differences in opinion!
