Where did the name come from?

A playful adaptation of the traditional ‘media kit’, the name came from the notion that international media relations would be more professional and efficient if everyone contributed to a “kitty” and took something useful and relevant away. The Internet is the perfect vehicle for this type of international collaboration and network.
