So much for challenging Robert Scoble… He challenged me right back. Here’s the email I just sent to Kensignton’s PR contact address (which was surprisingly easy to find). Perhaps if others have more to add they should send their own too.
Heya, I thought I should let you know (in case you don't already) that a couple of days ago there was a video posted online of how to defeat the locks on the Kensington laptop locks that many of us (including myself) own. You can find more about the story at http://www.stillhq.com/diary/000890.html, and a suggested response being proposed by an industry pundit at http://www.micropersuasion.com/2005/05/kensington_lock.html. I would suggest that either Robert Scoble http://radio.weblogs.com/0001011/2005/05/20.html#a10168 (a Microsoft PR person) or Jeremy C Wright http://www.ensight.org (a blogging consultant), both of whom are writing books on how to deal with events such as this, might be able to provide some useful advice at this time.
