Some people wonder why I like fangirl sites. Read this and wonder no more.

  • Lorraine, I really like your style, the way you write, the interviews you make are always very interesting and original…..why dont you do a “Greenwald” and move on to a better more well known venue? You’ve got plenty of talent.

  •  Thanks, that’s really kind of you to say. I do have an assignment from the Guardian, but they didn’t like the first draft. I have to raise my game if I want to work for them regularly.

    And the people at the Daily Dot are awesome. They are a great team of fun, helpful people all of whom have more pure journalism experience than I do. Much as I like to swear at editorial cuts and deadlines, they are great to work with and I’d miss them if I left.

    Also: let’s just say the major news outlets are not beating down my door. Anonymous, hackers and leaks are not mainstream enough to be very marketable, and my style is quirky. But I did have an interview Friday with On the Coast, CBC’s afternoon radio show; if it works out, I’ll be on a weekly panel discussing current events. Hope I was amusing and interesting enough in the interview. Wish me luck.

    Lorraine those are great news! I wish you the very best and keep us post it.


  •  Thanks!

    Besides it’s clear you know what you’re talking about, raincoaster, and this is very rare when speaking of tech stuff/web journalism/hacking communities/Internet dynamics and related arguments.

    Maybe you could try the Guardian, they are changing editorial line in these very days  ;P

  •  I’m going to put you all down as references, okay? If I ask John Young he’ll just tell me to get fucked, references are lies, resumes are fabrications, etc, etc.

    I want to get my big Anon vs Pedo story out before I hit the Guardian up for that. They don’t really have anyone doing Anonymous on a regular basis except Barratt Brown and I can’t see myself knocking him aside

    Indeed. RC is more knowleadgeable in these areas than many self described “experts”

  • Thanks! now, tell all your local and national papers, tv and radio stations.

  • Xochitl

    I will, do you know Spanish?

  •  Nope. I can count to five in Spanish, thanks to Count von Count on Sesame Street, but that’s it, alas.

  1. Thanks! Time will tell if I’m able to make good on it. The Dot has been awesome to me, and I want to use my interviews to raise their global profile.

  2. Thank you, that’s so nice of you. It’s all up to me: getting this Guardian story up to par, getting the rest of my interviews for the Dot done. I’m only a freelancer there, but the fact is they’ve been great to me.
