David: Now I'd like to see what you could do with Business Wire, what direction you would take it?

I'm curious on your take about how much Business Wire and PR Newswire are threatened today by
RSS and tomorrow by Google Base. I've not used the Business Wire service -- though I've been on receiving end of it as a journalist.

What seems clear to me is that to the degree the Business Wires of the world do more than release company news, the more they'll succeed. It looks like they are moving to provide lots of help to companies in targeting, monitoring and improving their messaging. Are these services successful and sticky for them?
