Roamfree Story - BOOT (kinda) makes into the Courier Mail

The comment stream in my original Roamfree post has (almost) led to the BOOT gaining a mention in mainstream press. Brisbane based newspaper the Courier Mail is carrying a story with the title "Roamfree faces online ire from former staff". No direct naming of the BOOT or link. But if they did readers would unfortunately find a number of comments saying "This post has been removed by the blog administrator."

What a PR nightmare for this company....I can imagine Roamfree will be a case study for Media students on what not to do and say during a media crisis. Roamfree currently have a $1 a room promotion on their site - in a few months the company itself could be worth $1

$1....... i think you are way over stretching the value

Tim, BOOT *did* recently get a MSM mention, on the Los Angeles Times Travel blog, by our lead blogger Jen, in our 4/24 AM roundup, re your Hubwear T-shirt giveaway contest:

Now then, when is someone going to invent a CAPTCHA challenge that is actually an IATA code trivia contest? (with a FB app tie-in, of course)

Please spare a thought to the misunderstood. We all go through pain and suffering

A friend just told me he was approached by someone about investing in Roamfree. Apparently they are seeking another - sit down now - $80M.

Needless to say he declined.
