Agree with you Eric...kudos to Aubrey and her gang for pulling off the PRSA MR site. I transparently disagree with the concept of forcing users to login to receive information from a site...it goes against the open nature of the concept. Many journalists will shy away from registration and so do I in many cases. Why would a professional organization that is promoting the industry in general force a member or a journalist to sign up to receive content that might help further promote the org?

The great thing about the blogosphere is that bias is transparent. For those of you who don't know, Dee has a company that competes with the guys who built the PRSA media room. My company, iPressroom is another competitor in the internet news room management services business. And while I agree with Dee that the features of this online media center are pretty basic, I tip my hat to my these guys for getting it done. In response to John Wagner's comment on whether or not a diversity section belongs in the press room, it is not at all uncommon for organizations to include a social or corporate responsibilty section in their internet press room. If achieving diversity happens to be a major part of that organizations philanthropic program -- rather than ethics, which may or may not be more needed (I'll stay out of that one) -- I think it is entirely appropriate to put this section in a company news room. How will the world know about your positive contributions unless you tell them what you've done? Thanks Constantin, for hosting this discussion.

It's also really stupid that you have to login with a username and a password to download documents or to sign up for email notifications...

PRSA Opens New Media Room PRSA unveiled its new online media room today. It's nicely done, with sections for news releases (including an RSS feed), media kits, profiles, photos/AV and advocacy issues. Not sure why a media room needs a special section on diversity, though. T...
