IP Communications Pioneer, Jeff Pulver, Launches Viral Video “Save The Net” Marketing Contest

Our client, Internet Communications pioneer and entrepreneur, Jeff Pulver, has
launched a new initiative calling for the submission of short, creative
ideas — videos, flash ads, other Internet-based gimmicks – that
effectively communicate to government and communications policy leaders
in Washington, that they must write rules to enable the Internet
innovators to transform the Internet and communications experience.


   Announcing his Viral Video “Save the Net” Marketing Contest
–  Pulver stated, “I am fed up with the current wave of sound-bites,
platitudes, ads and marketing flooding the airwaves that profess to
speak for the advancement of the Internet and communications.  These
ads are influencing the U.S. Congress and governments around the world
as they write the rules that will shape the future of the Internet and
communications.  It is time the Internet community started speaking for

Pulver Seeks The Voice and Message of The Internet Community

Pulver, who was successful two years ago in the FCC’s adoption of
the “Pulver Order,” which designated computer-to-computer Internet
communications services as “Information Services” not subject to
telecom regulation, is seeking to hear the voice and message of the
Internet community — the Internet innovators, entrepreneurs and
enthusiasts — in this world-changing discussion.

“While the Internet community might not have the lobbying muscle,
money, resources, or connections of the entrenched players in the
communications debate, we surely possess the individual and collective
will and creativity to transform the debate.”

Pulver contends the revolutionaries of the Internet and
communications should be the ones revolutionizing the way advocacy is
done and communicated in the Internet Age.

“We are the creative forces verifying that the medium is the
message. Who better than us to harness the enabling power of the
Internet to bring our message to legislators, to policymakers, to the
public?  Let’s throw away the old rulebook and try to think outside the
box to send a message to Congress from the global community of Internet
innovators and enthusiasts,” Pulver added.

  1. Like many people, I get about dozen emails a day bearing news good and best. The best is that my penis is too small, too soft and lacking the endurance to satisfy a fruit fly. The good is I can build a longer, stronger and everlasting erection for a few hundred dollars — by taking miracle pills.
    Example: “Get ready to be stopped by women in the street. Your entire image will emanate increased size! This is what you always needed to lead a happier, more fulfilling life.”
    What’s being promised is akin to Jack’s magic beans, except penis-enlargement pills don’t work so spectacularly. To get the extra inches requires at least a six-month commitment. But the pills need to be taken with an exercise program — “jelq” — including drills similar to stretching hamstrings before jogging. To see what LIKE many people, I get about a dozen emails a day bearing news good and bad. The bad is that it takes to become a Mr Big, go to You’ll find a nude man, a fairly happy man one imagines, pretending to be a clock, with what appears to be a baby’s arm grafted to his pubic bone as the minute hand.
    By the time I found this impressive fellow, I’d already paid $106 for a month’s supply of SizePro (chosen because of its professional-sounding name) and followed these instructions: “Type your name, the number of inches you want to gain, and the reason(s) you want to gain those inches in the blanks below. And read the completed statement out loud to reinforce the commitment that will lead to your ultimate success.”
    And so my colleagues heard me pledge earnestly: “I, John Elder, have decided I want to gain two inches in length and one inch in girth (I felt modest ambition would minimise disappointment). My reasons are vanity. And I’m committed to a good penis-pill system until I reach my desired gains.”
    If I hadn’t made this pledge, I could have abandoned the project — particularly after spotting Mr Baby Arm, whom I presume is also trying to improve himself. And that’s the rub. If you’re born with one of these ridiculous organs, there are times when just about every man feels short-changed.
    The average size of an erect penis is about 15.24 centimetres — six inches in the old money. (When talking about penis size, it’s traditional to use inches.) The sad thing is it seems there are many men living fretfully with a ruler in one hand and a world of hope in the other. To meet some of these people, return to — and log on to the “progress reports” forum. You’ll find men apparently taking the pills, diligently jelqing (stretching a flaccid penis) and sharing how it’s hanging. Like Nicky: “I’m 21, and, measured from the pelvic bone, the length of my penis is around 7.5 inches, but I’ve always wanted to be large like a porn star. I’ve been doing the exercise a few days now …”
    Occasionally, someone claims spectacular results. The simple reason is that the pills — herbal aphrodisiacs, not muscle-building proteins — give little more than an illusion of growth by concentrating blood in the otherwise shrivelled underbelly. But the real joke is that the more anxious one becomes about penis size, the more it is likely to shrink.
    “The curious thing about our society, most of the time we pretend that the penis doesn’t shrink,” says David Mitchell, a doctor and a medical anthropologist. “In fact, the penis doesn’t have a set flaccid size. It’s actually meaningless to measure the size of the penis because it varies from minute to minute according to the temperature and one’s state of mind. The trouble is, if you get anxious, it only makes it smaller, to the point where it can disappear … in cases where anxiety spirals into a panic attack.”
    Dr Mitchell has researched a recent outbreak of these attacks — known as “shrinking penis disease” — on the Indonesian island of Flores, where black magic is widely practised. In these instances, the sufferer believes he will die if his penis disappears. The last outbreak in a modern society occurred in Singapore in 1962, following a rumour that eating pork vaccinated against swine fever would cause shrinking penis disease.
    “There were people rushing through the streets holding their penises … some of them using chopsticks,” Dr Mitchell says. “As soon as they hit the hospital and started to relax, they came back to normal.”
    Dr Mitchell says the disease could re-emerge in the Western world. “It could come back again in our society if someone spread the right stories around,” he says.
    Chris Fox, of La Trobe University, is doing a PhD on penis size and its role in body image. So far, he has interviewed 15 men aged 20 to 75. “The short answer is that every man at some point in his life worries about the size of his penis,” Mr Fox says. “If we don’t like our penis we won’t enjoy sex. For people with a pathological issue with penis size, it will affect their sex life.
    “In some cases it will affect how they behave around other men. And one has to remember that most people make their comparison with a flaccid penis — at the urinal or in a change room. The only erections we tend to see are the very big penises on porn stars … and my interview subjects didn’t feel threatened by these giant penises because they felt they weren’t real. It’s in the real world that anxiety takes root.”
