Mark Evans Takes On The NY Times and Vonage

The New York Times may be the paper in the USA, but North of The Border Mark Evans writes for the National Post and he's jumped on the bandwagon today of questioning the judgement o fthe New York Times. Now it's one thing for us bloggers and new media types to question the gray lady, but one one of the fourth estate's own does, you know that we're all onto something.

Oh, reports are that Vonage does have a new PR agency. The account, that was in a quiet review following their time with Connors Communications, one of the better firms in tech, is reportedly moving to Weber Shandwick or some part of their empire. I don't think the move will help, unless they figure out that they need some really out of the box thinking, and they won't get that from the NYC group. That kind of thinking comes more from the SF and Seattle offices...

Oh...and I do like Mark's comment about Moi!!!! What a nice way to start my week:

One more thing: Vonage shares closed Friday at $8.90, which means they have lost 47% since the IPO hit the street. Andy Abramson, who knows the P.R. and VoIP industry's like the back of his hand, calls the NYT story "pure spin control".

Jon Arnold also has some very good insight on the state of Vonage.
