The Bog Standard Press Release died last week

The 'bog standard' press release is now dead.

What journalist given the choice between a New Media Release and releases currently in use would opt for the old one?

There is no choice. Press releases as we know it will continue for several years but will progressively become less effective, less used and less relevant as the media builds its new publishing model on a combination of on-line and print.

This week the NMR podcast introduced some applications of New Media Release.

The gene is out of the bottle.
