True. And it thins out my inbox. Always a good thing.


If judged solely on their email activities, many high tech PR firms seem slightly less effective than the guys trying to get me to buy prescription drugs from Mexico or to claim an inheritance from a fallen Kenyan leader.

Great question. I always ask if a source wants to be in the article (unless they're pitching something about themselves). We tend to assume a source is protected unless they say otherwise. And we'll always ask if we're not sure.

Can we then expect to see a league table at the end of the year of who's been pitching for certain rumours to be checked out?!


Or are you going to keep the assignments you receive - and their sources - confidential? :(

Another thing: Pitch enough good stories over time and I'll start calling you for ideas. That's what I do now with my best sources.
