A little thank you…

IMSafer Parents Blog

goes a long way. Thanks to Brandon and the team at IMSafer for recognizing the hard work Morgan/Dorado has put in with them over the past three weeks.

It’s been a lot of fun.


FLEXPERIENCE – If you need experienced temps


This company was recently launched by a friend of mine. Their goal is to connect employers who need experienced specialized temporary help and women who want to work part or flexible time.

Interesting model. I know that many of the people who work with me here at Morgan/Dorado are women with great experience that would be lost to the work force without companies’ (ok mine) willingness to be flexible with their schedules.

Foley Scandal Turns Parents Into Web Sleuths – WSJ.com
(sub. req’d to read whole article)

For those of you without subscriptions, here’s the lead:

“Lori Hahn of Sacramento, Calif., has made a habit of talking to her three teenagers about being careful whom they talk to online. Now, after the discovery that former Rep. Mark Foley sent sexually explicit instant messages to congressional pages, she says she is no longer taking any chances.

Parents can use Web filtering software to help protect their children from online predators.

“The Foley news spurred me to take action,” says Ms. Hahn, senior operations manager for a consulting firm, who days after the scandal broke installed IMSafer, a new program that promises to send her an email when sexual or predatory language appears in her children’s IM conversations. “I trust their judgment. But I don’t trust the people who are out there. The software gives me a little peace of mind.”

This speaks to the benefit of having customers available for reporters. Know who is using your product and how they use it.

Someone tell me this isn’t true!

Howard Rubenstein Even Spins Your Telephone – Daily Intelligencer – New York Magazine – NYC, New York, Manhattan, Brooklyn

OK, my former employer is getting raked over the coals and engaging in flagellation that would make the guy from the Da Vinci Code wince, but come on is this true?

NY Mag is reporting that Rubenstein PR is spoofing the NY Times phone number on Caller ID so Times reporters take their calls.

All we have in this industry is our credibility. Each day we call reporters and ask them to put their time, their jobs and their own credibility on the line to write about our clients. If we treat it as a game, we’re all going to be looking for new careers.

Props to Jossip for the link.
