The Buzz Saw's mission is primarily educational. The principals of buzzkiller.net (an entity not affiliated with Forbes, eCN, Fortune or Soldier of Fortune) have created a rob*st, inter*ctive, turnk*y buzzword-reduction soluti*n that is both Net-centr*c and Web-en*bled.
The Buzz Saw started in 1997 as a handcrafted email filter that read incoming email and rejected messages containing certain buzzwords and phrases. Then came the Web component in 1998, where I posted some of the truly execrable work that was occasionally foisted upon me. In the summer of 1999, El Robusto came aboard and we re-designed the site. We were joined by eEZD in the fall. Just in time to help out with the e-Kwanzaa 1999 publicity blitz, Fight Club, an arch yet humorous Latin survivor and dilettante grammarian, threw in as well.
Look for Buzz Saw 2.0 in the spring --uh, make that autumn -- of 2002.
Regarding reports that Buzz Saw principals have blackballed certain PR agencies:
Our coders have not yet completed the Buzz Saw's Java-based blackball feature, although we expect a beta in mid-Q4. Any pre-emptive blackballing is not the work of buzzkiller.net and may violate several patents buzzkiller.net has pending.
