Slowly and steadily, James Kendrick (and partner Kevin Tofel) have built a loyal following as honest, no-nonsense consumer tech bloggers with special expertise in all things mobile.
Perhaps that's why uber-blogger Om Malik acquired the jkOnTheRun blog this summer, making it the latest member of the Giga Omni Media family. Kendrick is on the hunt for the latest gadgets to test and review. He's also a popular podcaster, so expect him to talk about your product as well as write about it. But wait: how can you cut through the clutter and ensure your product is one of the elite that Kendrick selects for review?
Most people think to pitch Om Malik when seeking coverage in GigaOm.
Well, take a close look, and you'll see that the most prolific GigaOm writer of all is reporter Stacey Higginbotham, who has agreed to spend 30 minutes of her valuable time schooling PR pros on the "new GigaOm," its priorities and how best to secure coverage. Take a look at Stacey's own coverage and you'll see that she writes about vendors big and small, in hard-news and trend-analysis formats. But she's always all about the modern network, providing ubiquitous, high-bandwidth communication everywhere. She's as hungry to envision the future as you are.
