useful spam?

Interesting comment added to my post talking about Neal Stephenson's latest; is HarperCollins spamming weblog comments to announce the website for the book? The email of the person that left the comment is, although judging from my access logs it hasn't been done via an automated system - the IP that left the comment entered via this google search and appeared to do a quick browse before leaving the comment.

It's an interesting marketing approach, if it's done carefully; I actually do appreciate the information.

Bummer that the release date is now September though.

Currently listening to: Radiohead - No Surprises.
