ORLANDO, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- October 11, 2006 -- IC Places, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: ICPL) announced today that is has signed Eric Kennedy, former President and Editor in Chief of DuPont Registry, as IC Places' Editor in Chief.

As Editor in Chief, Kennedy will spearhead the company's global editorial initiative. ICPL has developed a proprietary Author's Program. Through the program, IC Places gives local writers online access to write and edit stories. The Author writes an article in the web interface and hits submit when finished. Automatically, one of Kennedy's senior editors receives notice that an article awaits approval. Once a senior editor approves the article it is immediately placed into the pre-selected city site and section and available online.

"Having a publishing Icon like Eric Kennedy on board is an honor. His proven track record at DuPont REGISTRY and 20 years of publishing experience is a giant leap forward for the company," said Steven Samblis, founder of IC Places.

"The world is changing and the lines of how we create, commute, and collaborate are being redefined by the internet. IC Places' sole mission is to exploit the endless resources of the web to produce a quantitative increase in the consumer's quality of life," said Eric Kennedy. He went on to say, "Allowing writers to participate in that process seamlessly is just one piece of mosaic that will once again redefine many people's lives and the way they look at career opportunities that can be pursued from virtually anywhere."

ICPL is also in the right place at the right time. Two of the main sources of corporate revenues come from Online Travel Services and Advertising Sales. With US Online Travel reaching $62 billion in 2005 and Online Advertising spending estimated to reach 11.6 billion this year, these are two of the internet's strongest sectors.
