Perhaps you read last month about Day 1 of the Wired25 event in San Francisco. Many a newsmaker spoke, and it was an A-list event from a speaker and attendee POV.

Happy hunting and let us know whom we've missed.
Who covers B2B survey results? Any reporter could, but there usually is a core group who are OK with average sample sizes and takeaways that are less than earth-shattering. Here's a working list of those with whom you'd have a fighting chance when pitching a survey story.
This past year was tough on tech PR -- no need to recount the details. But in the nick of time IDG Insider Pro has breezed into town. Though it does run product reviews that appear on other IDG sites, it's no mere roll-up.
