The year 2000 was a strange year for me in PR terms at least.
hadn't brought the world to a standstill and society didn't break down into a sprawling epic a la George Kennedy's Max Max series
the agency that I worked for got on with task in hand of making obscene amounts of money.
My accounts seemed to be a non-stop stream of major product launches, new websites and telecoms services.
I guess it was due the pressure of a number of factors, but some of my friends came to bits at the seams and thankfully now they seem to be solidly together.
I used to use a service called Zaplets
to manage press release edits amongst different parties and even sign offs on appraisal paperwork. Eventually Firedrop disappeared and transformed itsself into selling enterprise widgets. Now I came across Writeboard
which does a similar kind of job, but in a different way as a web-based word processor that anyone with a modern web browser canb use. You no longer have to worry if clients have the same version of Microsoft Word that you have.
A scarier reminder of 2000, is the resurgence of the internet incubator. SiliconBeat highlighted Next Internet LLC in this posting
