What's the difference between advertising and PR? You have to pay for advertising.

PR experts are paid too.

I know it's not perfect, but I like to say it. Originally, it was propaganda, not PR. SOME PR is free, like going on talk shows, but I stopped doing talk shows. :) Propaganda is almost free: a writer, a reader, and a radio station. You must be on the West Coast or Hawaii, since you are the last one to bed usually. In another hour, this place is dead. That's why my comment is often first: somebody posts and goes to sleep, then I come along a few hours later and get 'em all, but I'm trying to cut down on that.

Yeah. Also hanging out on new can make you first.

I don't really want to be first but if a post has been sitting there for a while I figure it needs a boost sometimes. But if my, or someone's first comment falls flat, it can be the kiss of death. It midnight here, so I'm going to bed early. Drop me a line sometime. There must be a MESSAGE function somewhere.

This is the company that owns the NIV version I guess: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biblica

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zondervan

This company has the exclusive publishing license from Biblica, and is owned by newscorp, which is Murdoch's company. Wow, it's true.

Also I find it weird you can "own" an entire version of the bible. I've never considered that before.

since he owns it, he can also edit it.. or maybe even demand that all the other bibles be removed from the market? idk ianal

[–]magnora7 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

I think Biblica would have to edit it, or give permission to, because they hold the copyright. I don't think it's been edited since the late 70s but I could be wrong.
