Got an email from Rich Waters at the Financial Times, SF Bureau, saying he doesn't know about Colleen Taylor. I posted last year she had left E News for a "position at FT in SF." Never did say what she was doing because I didn't know. Rich and I finally figured it out.
Colleen is a researcher for mergermarket.com, a tiny acquisition FT made a little over a year ago.
So all of you PR types trying to get covered in FT by contacting Colleen... probably won't work. Remember, just because you know a journalist, doesn't mean they are going to cover your client. You have to have news that the publication might want to cover. And the latest version of the Crapfinder IP verification tool doesn't qualify.
Rich, hope that keeps your email box a little cleaner.
