What’s Wrong With Sensationalist Media
Check out this email I got from a major media company this past week:
I was just talking to my boss about New York's tech scene and the types of stories I should go after. He wants me to get a little personal like digging into how founders and investors are actually using all this money flowing into the city. But beyond the typical, there must be some stories that have gone unreported or overlooked. Like maybe there's a new Brookly luxury bulding where 10 startup founders all bought homes, or there's a restaurant that all the tech geeks in the city go to to close their deals. Or there is a tailor from France who makes all the suits for the city's tech entrepreneurs. I am not saying any of these are THE story, but it's just the type of story I would love to tell.
Not interested in The Academy For Software Engineering, HackNY, TechStars NYC, or Angel List, which is where the money seems to be flowing (ie back into the startup ecosystem) but instead interested in suits for tech entrepreneurs.
