Want to Listen to Me Blather on About Our Blog and the Exponential Economy?
Talk about turning the tables. It’s usually we reporters and writers that tap into the knowledge of public relations people—-occasionally interviewing them but often working with them to find the right people to speak with at companies and organizations. They don’t interview us, usually.
But since Xconomy is a relatively new publication, PR people have been pretty keen to pick our brains about our mission, what stories we are looking for, and the like. And last week, I did one such interview that quickly broadened out into areas that seem potentially interesting to more than just the people who want to pitch us stories. The talk was with John Moran, director of Schwartz Communications, a leading public relations and communications firm that has offices out in Waltham (as well as other cities). We of course spoke about Xconomy, our philosophy of coverage, who we see as competition, and where we are heading—but we also talked about the exponential economy, the IPO and venture investment climate, areas of growth Xconomy sees in New England, and more.
The interview was part of Schwartz’s Spotlight on New Media series of podcasts. It’s less than 10 minutes long if you want to check it out here.
