I just read up on the whole Ocean Marketing / Penny Arcade fiasco. Wow. Totally blew my mind, but it’s a story with a very happy ending. It makes me think of all the times I’ve gotten pissed off, started writing an angry email and then stopped myself half way through. I tried to put myself in Mr. Christoforo’s shoes for a second to think about what could have made him do something so irresponsible. Something so completely and utterly unprofessional. We all get angry and stressed out, but it is important to remember that people don’t always know where you are coming from. To you something might seem so clear to the point that you get angry at people for misunderstanding you. You think, “Why are these people so stupid?” But really they just aren’t seeing it the way you are. The key there is communication. This whole issue would have never have happened if Paul had simply given a clearer picture of what was going on. He did in the end, but it was waaaaaaay to late. Hopefully we can all learn from the mistakes of one hot headed Ocean Marketing PR dude.
