Government Technology: Technology Notes: Alice Marshall’s Blog
Alice Marshall, who runs a Washington-area technology marketing blog called Presto Vivace, said an end to net neutrality could make the Internet like cable TV, with the carrier determining which channels are available.
“We don’t want a situation, God help us, where a large company, like say General Electric, owns the cable carrier, and they favor their partners, and if you’re not one of their partners they block you altogether,” she said.
It has been more almost two weeks since the trial… er, hearing with GSA Administrator Lurita Doan, and I am still pondering what it all means…or may not mean.
I have gone back back and re-read the testimony — several times. I also read all sorts of columns and blogs about the hearing.
I found this one particularly interesting from the Presto Vivace blog, a CJD-fav blog:
Every year or so I do an unscientific survey of reporters and editors from the government trade press to see which PR firms are most respected and most helpful to both their clients and the publications. I email people I work with in the press and simply ask their opinion and I guarantee their anonymity.
There were no big standouts (no company with more than 2 votes). The best recommendations in terms of how the reporter or editor referenced a PR firm were for Alice Marshall (PrestoVivace; one reporter called her the best he had worked with) and Evan Weisel (W2 Communications, one reporter noted he does lots for his clients and adds actual value for the trade press). Other reporters just sent lists, or had shorter comments. And while I did not ask for it, a few gave me negative feedback. Instead of sharing the negative, I simply took a point away from the company referenced.
