You pick what PR pitches we accept for Mobile World Congress

Crowdsource? Or is it crowd-approve? I don’t know.

I’m going to get a Digg-style Mobile Industry Review system setup shortly that will enable all our readers to review every single PR pitch we’ve received in connection to the upcoming Mobile World Congress.

We’ll add every single one we’ve got and that we receive. Anything that receives… I dunno… 5 or 10 diggs will get the MIR torch shined brightly upon it.

Anything that gets 20+ diggs will get a visit from the MIR Show team and we’ll do a piece on them.

And.. I dunno — this is just arbitrary at the moment — anything with 40+ diggs will get a visit from the MIR Show video team and we’ll record a video interview.

I think those diggs numbers might be too high. The MIR audience doesn’t click that much. You guys are too busy changing the mobile world, right?

We’ll see how we get on.

The key points being that the MIR audience can indicate what they’d like us to look at — as well as being pleasantly surprised by the general coverage we’re planning anyway.

And if nothing from the pitches takes your fancy… so be it. That’ll tell us quite a lot won’t it?

I've picked handful but, frankly, they all sound so turgid! Do none of these organisations have any creativity, or the ability to engage in a personable way? Enjoy.
