The Best PR Person in the Biz?

Author: John Honovich, Published on Sep 20, 2012

Most trade magazine 'articles' simply cut and paste press releases. Few are generic survey pieces. But every once in a while, an article is so amazing and expertly crafted by a Public Relations (PR) person that even we need to give it kudos.

Such a rare event occurred recently on the pages of SecurityInfoWatch for their coverage of "Unique Camera Technology." What products would be so 'unique' as to merit such high praise?
