Reporters looking to bloggers for story information

No question that lawyers publishing blogs are being used as sources for editors and reporters. Florida asset protection lawyer Jon Alper was recently quoted at length in the New York Times and used as source by a producer of NBC’s Dateline. Contingency fee patent lawyer Phil Mann was recently interviewed by the Wall Street Journal. Both give full credit to their blogs for this new found publicity.

Now Steve Rubel at Micropersuasion reports Rick Broida posted a request on SpreadFirefox.com via one of their bloggers looking for help for a major feature story he’s writing for ZDNet on medium/large companies and organizations that have switched to the Mozilla Firefox Web browser or are considering doing so. Rick says…

I would still like to hear from IT managers and/or company execs who are dealing with the switch. I would also appreciate any known stats/research studies regarding Internet Explorer/Firefox penetration, usage, etc.

Not only does Rubel believe Rick is smart to be going this route, he wonders if Profnet – a service that feeds journalist’s story needs daily to PR teams – will become the next service to become Napsterized?
