Paull Young is drinking from a New York fountain now!

Me ol’ china plate Paull Young has snaffled himself a cracking job!

You may remember that Paull left our fair shores a few month’s ago for a ’round-world’ exploration of this new communications society.

Paull travelled here, there and yes, even everywhere to talk with the wise, the famous, the infamous and the oblique of the web comms world. His excellent blog is a wonderful travelog of his three-month world tour of the PR blogosphere during which he met face-to-face with bloggers in eight countries on three continents. In mid-2005, Young co-founded the ‘anti-astroturfing campaign’, which set into motion a wide-ranging debate on social media and PR ethics.

Now, it seems, some razor-sharp worldly-wise folks in New York have decided to snap him up for themselves before some other lucky company nabs him.

One of the most-recognized social media communications agencies, Converseon, has named Paull Young as a senior account executive in its New York headquarters. Young, author of the Young PR blog and a respected PR blogger and podcaster, will execute social media strategies for Converseon’s clients, reporting to Converseon’s director of social media, Constantin Basturea.

“Paull embodies what Converseon is all about,” said Converseon CEO Rob Key. “He offers passion, innovation, commitment and a desire to push the edges of digital communications where possible. We’re delighted to have such a talent as part of our team.”

Paull shortly flies back out to NY, to join Converseon. Here’s what he thinks about it (and there’s even an audio file about it, too!).

Well done, mate! Truly deserved!!

[and apols for not blogging about this yesterday — I was on campus all day researching Foucaulterk!]
