How not to pitch...

I'm not exactly an A-list blogger, but I still get pitched by PR firms, which is presumably has more to do with demographics than anything else. However Ryan Block the managing editor of Engadget, who probably has to deal with a few more pitches than I do, is obviosuly getting tired and has published a post on how not to pitch a blogger.

I can sympathise, I recall getting called up once by an IPTV firm based in Vancouver who wanted to pitch their break through technology, and it was amongst the most bizarre twenty minutes of my life. Especially since, in that case, it was certainly not about demographics. I don't think I've ever talked about IPTV in the whole time I've been writing this blog...
