As a note, this is why the Edelman Digital Bootcamp at UGA was so important - it was training the next generation of PR people to think differently and to embrace more than just the usual suspects . […] UGA seem(s) to be a step ahead […] they care about PR, they get it is changing, and they try to embrace the new with the old. -Jeremy Pepper, POP! PR Jots Lasting Effects
