Just been called by a PR asking me to an event.
She said perhaps I would like to write it up for a certain magazine.
The magazine closed more than six months ago.
She was unaware of this fact.
Nor could she comprehend the fact that I do not write about consumer technology and therefore have little or no interest in attending, prompting an argument that “It will be really interesting and there will be some senior executives there to interview.”
Hopeless. Just hopeless.
And would you believe the agency concerned has just been fired by the client they are organising the even for?
No surprise, is it?
