This one's a bit here-and-there... initially we looked at contributed content opps in the personal finance space... and came up with only two. Editors at other pubs might possibly entertain your contributed-content pitch, however -- for various reasons. Anyway, happy hunting on this.
There are hundreds, right? But only 40 have published content either in Forbes's CIO channel or its cloud channel since Oct. 1. We think we got all of them -- name, channel, email and a link to their work. The vast majority are analysts, though some are vendors, with an edit freelancer or two. 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.

Ransomware is here to stay and both business and trade media will have to assign resources to cover it. The following is a short list -- well, maybe not so short -- of must-pitch reporters in the space. Many obvious names here, some less so.

For some reason we've managed not to offer cheat sheets on key tech categories, so as the summer progresses we're going to fix that. Let's get started with a list of 20 AWS reporters -- the more obvious ones, who write frequently. Watch for our list of 20 AWS reporters who might not be so top-of-mind.
This is a bit of an experiment -- a tiny amount of words seeking to set apart Tier 1 from the trades. What are their core values? Are any shared? How are they similar and different? PR pros may know all this -- especially you vets -- but do the clients? Perhaps this short-and-sweet copy can (in a small way) make agency-client life easier.
Not exactly a target list -- more like a treasure map to the targets... here's the path to America's top 15 national newspaper tech sections, along with the email syntax for each.
