Note : After further communication with multiple parties , this blog post was a result of misunderstanding .  It was supposed to send to the developers and marketeers to discuss further and provide inputs base on their opinions but instead made its way on the blog  due to misunderstanding and with some new information left out  .

TL;DR (real world version)

If you are a Core Developer and wish to state an opinion about anything, use a pseudonym.




I see no problem with this, as long as opinions still get posted.

I believe this is going to be good for the market cap as everything will be much more professional and similar to the way real businesses work, but something doesn't feel right with Dan submitting to group think and filtered answers...

It was the case for a long time , you know , any answer regarding the tax or legal issue or something implicating those issues are filtered by group think of lawyers and tax consultants . If not careful , it may leave some door open either  ...

I know James has a very good reputation among our eastern community members, and I am sure that is well deserved. Because of this, I will give him the benefit of the doubt that his intentions are pure and just.

However, I have to say that I his post on Bytemaster's Blog today did not have the signs of a good, professionally written piece of PR. It had several grammatical errors, awkward sentence structures, and tended to read like a damage control piece.

By "public relations", does he simply mean "speech advisor" ? His list of (7) decrees to limit the speech of the devs is appropriate and understandable in the context of private advisory, but a PR professional would never have posted something like that publicly.

That said, I wonder if James would be open to answering a few questions....

1. Is he only working in an advisory capacity to the devs, or does he plan to try and coordinate with all BitShares delegates?

2. Where is his operation based - China or the US? How much time will he focus on western markets, vs. eastern markets?

3. Does he plan to aggressively pursue relationships with western media contacts? Does he have any experience with Public Relations in the United States or Europe?

4. How soon can we expect Press Releases distributed over 1st tier western wires like PR newswire, Business Wire, or PR Web? This is a cornerstone to good PR, but is relatively expensive ($250 - $1000 per Press Release). Is he receiving funds from "Invictus" (aka. BM), or will he be relying entirely on delegate pay?

Keep in mind that good Public Relations means a steady and consistent feed of information, in order to help to "shape" the narrative. Let us keep a close eye on how well this job is handled...

Good move I think. Blog post written with an unnecessary bearish review of the current BitShares situation though.

Also its spelt Bitshares everywhere instead of BitShares  :-*
