Media Coordinator Update, 08/05/11

Dear C4SS supporters,

This week, I submitted 9,208 Center op-eds to 2,801 publications on six continents.

Tentative results: Seven pickups in five publications on two continents. I expected more than that given last week’s high submissions volume (nearly 13,000 Center op-eds submitted), and we may still see some later pickups.

It doesn’t happen very often, but this week I led the pack with five. “Why We Fight” ran in the Carroll County, Maryland Standard on July 30 and in the Deming, New Mexico Headlight on August 2. The Standard also ran my “Debt Ceiling Debate: A Night at the Theater” on July 31, and “Scary Story: The State vs. Anarchists” on August 3. Counterpunch published “Scary Story” on August 5.

On August 3, David D’Amato’s “The Invariable State” appeared in the Dhaka, Bangladesh New Age.

Another Bangladesh English-language daily, the New Nation, ran Kevin Carson’s “‘Property Rights’ Aren’t Just for the Rich” on August 4.

The French-language blogosphere seems to be grooving on C4SS this week, so our pseudo-random reciprocal link love is a je t’aime right back in that direction: Le Grand Soir, Dazibaoueb, and Oxygene.

Behind the scenes here at C4SS, our media efforts are starting to blossom.

Thanks to the hard work of our Social Media Specialist, Stacy Litz, Facebook sharing and other social outreach continues to trend upward.

Research Associate Kevin Carson has literally added his voice to the mix — after long limiting his output to text, he’s begun doing radio interviews, sparking new interest in the Center’s work.

Why We Fight QR CodeI’m starting to put together a new multimedia project for the Center — still in the discussion/planning phase, but it looks promising, and will hopefully leverage your participation into more exposure for the market anarchist message. It starts with QR codes, like the one over on the right of this paragraph, but we’re going to have to come up with the right kind of content (mobile-friendly, short, action-inspiring) to back it with. I think I’ll have something to show you next week …

… so have a great weekend, and stay tuned!

Yours in liberty,
