[linux-elitists] SCO: new PR firm

What's interesting about the latest SCO release isn't
> The SCO Group Reconfirms Closing of Repurchase Transaction Between SCO and
> BayStar Capital
(quick, how long until BayStar issues another "is
but the contact info:
> /CONTACT: Blake Stowell, +1-801-932-5703, firstname.lastname@example.org, or Marc
> Modersitzki, +1-801-932-5635, email@example.com, both of The SCO Group; or
> Anton Nicholas of Sloane & Company, +1-212-446-1889, firstname.lastname@example.org,
> for The SCO Group/
That's right, new PR firm. Sloane & Company's clients
include American Express Corporate Travel, AT&T, and
Harrah's, and first among the services they offer is
Pretty good PR Week article on the agency's founder.
Seems like Mr. Sloane is more inclined to actually
advise a client than just sitting back and letting
him run his mouth like SCO's former PR agency had
been doing. I don't think Darl's threatened Slashdot
astroturfing is Mr. Sloane's style at all -- look for
the new and improved SCOX PR campaign to aim high,
at the Wall Street Journal or the real Forbes.
SCOX has to be interesting for a PR professional --
every time your client says something incorrect to
a reporter, the reporter gets mail from people with
30 years of Unix history on file, a PACER account,
SCOX is supposed to have a "key" announcement
scheduled for the conference call on Tuesday the 31st.
If they feel like they had to bring in a new PR
firm, it might be pretty important, at least by
Conference call info.
