Our PR department is amazing! (or Netscape PR recap)

Just got a list from my amazing PR department with some of the massive coverage we got for the launch last week.

We did 26 analyst/press briefings which is more briefings than we’ve done on any tour in seven years I’ve been told. I think every, single outlet said yes–wild!

For five days last week I did up to nine, 45-minute presentations of the new Netscape. It was exhasuting, but amazing. It’s so great to have the resources of such a professional, fun, and intelligent PR department. I hate PR… I never do it, I just build stuff and let the chips fall.

Now that I’ve seen how GOOD PR is done I’m changing my position. It’s really, really powerful to do a press tour if you have a *qualified* PR group. Thanks Andrew, John, Linda, Lisa, Lauren, and everyone else in the group that helped out!

Amazing…. great work.
