Our reader’s scuffle with DirecTV over their “informational” robots calling her, despite being on their do-not-call list, got a mention in the New York Times this weekend. [NYT]
Despite their decline in significance and circulation over the past few years, it is still a bit of a rush to get your work mentioned in the Times. When my web page was mentioned in a Travel Section article, it was way cool!
A few years ago I left a review on Amazon for some crappy Hot Wheels toy someone bought my son. It was well worded eloquent. I few weeks later I got a call from a NYT reporter asking about it. She was writing an article on crappy toys. She quoted me and some of my review a few times in the article. It was neat.
Still don’t know how she got my contact info from a review.
