Delicious Pitching

Steve Rubel is picking up on an idea from Nick Denton, who is asking readers to send him links via del.icio.us.

Meanwhile, I am getting overwhelmed with reader mail. Don’t get me wrong, I love hearing from you, but many of these are just link/PR pitches. I am going to try this approach. I ask from here on in that you please pitch me only via del.icio.us unless I already correspond regularly with you. I am doing this not only to cut down my mail but to make the PR pitching process transparent so that everyone can see what I blog/don’t blog. This will hopefully make those who pitch me better at what they do.

So, if you want me to take a look at something to link/comment on, please post it to del.icio.us with the tag ‘micropersuasion’ and include your pitch in the extended entry.

Not sure that’s entirely in the spirit of del.icio.us, but it’s an interesting re-use of the core idea nonetheless.
