These days, it seems like everyone in the PR industry is either working with dot-com companies or working at them.

So on a recent slow news afternoon, after getting a chuckle out of some
simply atrocious press releases - ’we leverage best-of-breed integrated
strategies’ and similar tripe - the conversation in the newsroom
inevitably shifted to the Internet craze.
’I wonder who owns the PR.com domain name?’ one of our intrepid staffers
queried. A few clicks later we were on the site. Alas, our curiosity was
only piqued, not sated.
The site in question offers nothing but a PR.com logo and the cryptic
message, ’Coming soon.’
Who’s coming soon? Where? Why? How many PR pros will you steal from
top-10 agencies? And how come we didn’t think of this before?
Whoever you are, PR.com, you’ve been officially ’outed.’ So stand up and
be recognized; inquiring minds want to know.
