Random side-question: I've noticed in at least the last couple of blog articles that the abbreviation for Public Relations 'pr' has been lowercase. I'm assuming that's deliberate - could you talk more about the choice? Is there a movement in the industry toward using lowercase or is there another acronym it might be confused with that you're trying to avoid?

It brings to mind a recent group that was formed at work, the Project Management Office, which has the unfortunate acronym of PMO (aka Prime Minister's Office). Perhaps adopting the lowercase 'pmo' might be helpful for them to distinguish, though I suppose there could be some benefits to folks jumping to reply to requests, if they think they are being made from THE PMO ;)

I've wondered about that too and have used lowercase, but perhaps it should be "PR" instead. I think that's more common.

Good catch. Perhaps I will use upper case from now on. Thank you.
