New journalism at its luckiest? Boonsri Dickinson, a tech blogger & associate editor of Byte, got an interview with the Giants’ pitcher Matt Cain the day he threw a perfect game. Even the MLB.com writers didn’t get this up close & personal! That’s what happens when you know the CIO.
I knew there were lots of zeros in the game, but I was there at the stadium to interview people about bringing their devices to the game. In the ninth inning, I was with my film crew, away from the field getting ready to interview Bill Schlough, the SF Giants chief information officer. However, Schlough changed his mind about the interview. He knew we couldn’t miss this moment, and led us over to home plate.”
