Top Edelman PR Exec Says Web 2.0 Companies Drunk On Own Kool Aid

steverubel.jpgSteve Rubel is a senior guy at Edelman, the world's largest private PR firm. He wrote a post titled: "The Web 2.0 World is Skunk Drunk on Its Own Kool-Aid."

He blames the media and advertising!!!

Well, didn't Edelman and hundreds of PR firms hype and hype Web 2.0 companies and continue to do so???

If Mr Rubel feels this way then ethically, he and his colleagues in PR should tell their Web 2.0 clients they don't have a chance. Oh, wait, he just did! (Now give them their money back....)
