I urgently need to find some experienced san fran based freelance
journalists, who have written on technology and/or business for
leading publications like the San Francisco Chronicle. I am visiting
San Fran from London for a couple of days (leaving the evening of
thurs 10th) and need to meet as many quality freelancers as I can
while I'm here, with a view to offering them freelance or full-time
work at a new San Fran office we're starting. I just need their names,
a brief list of who they've written for and their emails or phone
numbers.Again, I'm looking for people who have written for top
publications like the San Fran Chronicle, NY Times,, leading
consumer tech and business IT magazines (eg eweek).

I had posted this question last week. I believe czh-ga was working on
this question before it was removed. She had posted a warning that
including my e-mail address would lead to removal of the question. I'd
like to give czh a chance to answer.  If no answer is posted today,
the question is open to anyone else. A list of 10-12 journalists would

that you would quickly repost the question. I was able to find you
because you had posted your e-mail.
Thank you for your discretion.
Welcome to San Francisco.

Hello again billbryson-ga,

Thank you for asking for me. I had continued my research on your
question after you posted it last week. I thought you were going to be
here on the 10th.

Here is a list of 12 San Francisco Bay Area based freelance
journalists. Most of them have websites, blogs or other public places
where they discuss their work and/or post their resume or writing
samples. Some of them I was able to find through references to their
work and I tracked down their contact information.

I hope you will be able to get in touch with them while you're in San
Francisco. Please don't hesitate to ask for clarification if you need
additional information.

Wishing you a successful trip.
