April 2007: Most companies are wholly unprepared to deal with the new nastiness that's erupting online. That's worrisome as the Web moves closer to being the prime advertising medium—and reputational conduit—of our time. 'The CEOs of the largest 50 companies in the world are practically hiding under their desks in terror about Internet rumors,' says top crisis manager Eric Dezenhall, author of the upcoming book Damage Control. 'Millions of dollars in labor are being spent discussing whether or not you should respond on the Web.'http://www.businessweek.com/magazine/content/07_16/b4030068.htm
January 2007: The author of Nail 'Em! Confronting High-Profile Attacks on Celebrities and Businesses is not the kind of figure normally associated with the relatively sedate world of scientific publishing. Besides writing the odd novel, Eric Dezenhall has made a name for himself helping companies and celebrities protect their reputations, working for example with Jeffrey Skilling, the former Enron chief now serving a 24-year jail term for fraud.

New York Times Apr 06, 2007 Venom on the Web: Nastiness online can erupt and go global overnight, and "no comment" doesn't cut it anymore. Here's how to cope
QUOTE: Most companies are wholly unprepared to deal with the new nastiness that's erupting online. That's worrisome as the Web moves closer to being the prime advertising medium—and reputational conduit—of our time...In the beginning, the idea of this new conversation seemed so benign. Radical transparency: the new public-relations nirvana! Companies, employees, and customers engage in a Webified dialectic. Executives gain insight into product development, consumer needs, and strategic opportunities. All the back-and-forth empowers consumers, who previously were relegated to shouting at call-center minions. Venom can be a great leading indicator.

QUOTE: At issue is a movement spearheaded by patient advocates and others who say they should not have to buy subscriptions to expensive scientific journals to read the results of research they paid for with their taxes.

QUOTE: ...what kind of bad guys America wants? Answer: honest ones. A thief pointing a gun at your head makes no pretense about his intentions, but a thief armed with a laptop and a smile is out to fool you, and Americans absolutely hate to be fooled.
