Open source press releases. James Governor at MonkChip’s discusses Ian Skerrat’s press release at the Eclipse Foundation. Ian is releasing two press releases to the public for comment before he issues three press releases to the wire.
Ian is looking for feedback on the press releases. He also wrote an earlier post, and has already collected some comments. Gaining feedback from customers for products is a good way to gain ideas about your products. The purpose of public relations is to get other people talking about your product or idea.
This strikes me as ingeneous; but very difficult to sell to clients.
