If the demo is for me, how come the laptop is angled toward you?

Dear PR person,
We didn’t “work together” back in 1999. You pitched me. It was beautiful, but don’t make it more than it is.
You will live to regret your oh-so-clever product name. I’m looking at you, Profilactic.
Do not chew gum during your pitch. What are you, 8 years old? BTW Happy Monday.
Demo presenters are already contacting bloggers. Haven’t heard from TechCrunch companies. Who’s gonna get smarter coverage?
Study your target. How hard is it to read his/her stuff before you pitch?
Just to be clear, Tip #10 comes from the rare interview (today) with someone what clearly had read my recent posts.
If a product reviewer contacts you with a criticism of something you just pitched, asking for an explanation, respond asap.
Speakerphones suck. (Jason was right.)
