Press Release – For Immediate Release
Issued on May 31, 2005
Nicholas’ website, nicholaspyers.com, was featured in May 30, 2005 issue of The Age and Sydney Morning Herald newspapers Technology section, Next.
The feature is found in a six-page lift out special entitled “Meet Joe Blogs”, where Next asked some of Australia’s most influential bloggers what it takes to stand out from the loudmouthed crowd.
The feature covering nicholaspyers.com is entitled “Apple to the core with ‘structured viewpoints'”
It commences with the statement “Nicholas Pyers’ blog reminds the influential American Apple user community that Apple is a global brand and its overseas customers face different challenges to those in the US.” and concludes with “Mr Pyers says his is not a typical blog, which can be more like a diary, but it’s not true journalism, either. He describes his contributions as “structured viewpoints”.”
Mention of the un-attributed quote found in iCon, the unauthorized biography on Apple and Pixar CEO, Steve Jobs, is also mentioned, along with the material Nicholas covers, and plans to cover, on his site.

The following definition of “blog” was found at Wikipedia.org, the Free Encyclopedia;
“A weblog (usually shortened to blog, but occasionally spelled web log) is a web application presented as a webpage consisting of periodic posts, normally in reverse chronological order. The term blog came into common use as a way of avoiding confusion with the term server log.”
