    I like what you have to say here. Nicely put! But I also think PR is forgetting the fragmentation of the message as this unwittingly underscores. Being a long time PR pro that is in social network dev now, its interesting to see how the message has many more target ears and influence then ever. Your example shows how the entrepreneur didnt understand the difference between his VC message and business circle message. I find it endlessly fascinating that few of the these brilliant start up types get that. Solis does but I can almost see so many giving his blog the old dog head tilt. Thanks again.
