[Noisebridge-discuss] Flyer for benefit

    I'd like to get corrected; I suspect my understanding 
may be wrong (I've worked in publishing on the magazine 
end of things). 
    "Press kit" (to me) can mean a lot of things. Mainly 
I think it is a package sent to various personages in the 
media. It includes a press release. A press release is 
supposed to present information on a particular aspect of 
some entity such as a new product or service. Good press 
releases are a few short paragraphs with a headline and a 
date, all to benefit the copy-and-paste work of too-busy 
journalists, as well as complete contact info for the 
entity sending the press release. 
    I've seen enough stuff to form a rule: the simple 
packages usually correlate to good products and elaborate 
packages to puff-ware. 

    It may be that "press kit" means something different 
from a promotional info pack for a particular thing, 
perhaps a set of background info on the enterprise and 
product line descriptions and full contact info. 

    Corrections and flames welcome.
