Paul Graham has A Plan for Spam … "I think it's possible to stop spam, and that content-based filters are the way to do it." Sounds good to me!
A quote from Dan Bricklin's post about Small Biz Blogging : "An area where blogs can really shine is in crisis management. In addition to internal communications like normal project management, a public blog can be a major way to conduct effective communication with the public and press.

"… blogs are rapidly becoming authoritative news sources. PR professionals should keep this new type of media on their radar screens"
"Publicists have long sought means for reaching highly targeted audiences, including media reps, in order to drive buzz about their clients. With the kind of traffic and targeting that any of the aforementioned sites generate, topic-specific blogs can fit the bill."
