Quotes for the week ending 30 April, 2010

The press release is dead, whether or not it’s optimized for social media. When was the last time you sent a release to a reporter who then replied with enthusiasm about covering your story?

Holly Harmon, a reader commenting on the above.

“We are Wall Street. It’s our job to make money. Whether it’s a commodity, stock, bond, or some hypothetical piece of fake paper, it doesn’t matter. We would trade baseball cards if it were profitable. I didn’t hear America complaining when the market was roaring to 14,000 and everyone’s 401k doubled every 3 years. Just like gambling, its not a problem until you lose. I’ve never heard of anyone going to Gamblers Anonymous because they won too much in Vegas.”

An email circulating this week, written by someone supposedly form Wall Street

“An enraging piece of utter nonsense”

Huffington Post, commenting on the “We aren’t dinosaurs” email above
