That press release I just sent you….umm…just kidding

Valleywag and Marshall Kirkpatrick have put together a big oops on the part of Amazon. Someone screwed up and sent a release to Marshall at Read/Write/Web about an announcement. He wrote about it here. This demonstrates the good and the bad about instant publishing as this morning according to Valleywag he posted on Twitter (I just can’t type “Twitterred” in good conscience) that:

“Update: Amazon contacted us this morning to let us know that though they sent us a draft press release, they are not in fact making any such announcement, they are not supporting OpenSocial and if they were it would still be under embargo anyway despite the date on said release.”

Oops. Did you read that ‘despite the date on the release?’ So then what does the date on the release mean?

  1. Hahaha! That’s great. I like it when the big guys make mistakes too. Makes us all look a little more human…
