Get Ready to Pitch to Wall Street Journal Digits

WSJ460This week the Wall Street Journal finally announced its replacement for AllThingsD.

The new “WSJD”, which we assume stands for the established Wall Street Journal Digits, will be part of the paper’s “Marketplace” business section, and it will be the place to go for reviews of the newest “personal technology” toys.

With all due respect to the talented journalists who will make up WSJ‘s new tech review team, they don’t have quite the clout of Kara Swisher and Walt Mossberg. Given the fact that they work for the most-read paper in the U.S., however, it’s probably in your best interest to get to know them a little better.

Joanna Stern (she of the awesome hack-to-flack Twitter marriage proposal) may be the biggest name among the new group, though Nathan Rothman‘s following is nothing to sneeze at and Nathan Olivarez-Giles wins the most colorful bio contest as a “is a former amateur hip-hop DJ who…[started] a comic book venture at age 18.”

We have no doubt the new team will do a great job of updating the public on the new things they should buy with their Christmas bonuses…so here’s your Friday follow.

Here’s Your Favorite ‘Hack-to-Flack’ Twitter Wedding Proposal

It was literally a case of a “hack” proposing to a “flack” over Twitter. Oh, and the flack said yes.

Also: it was far smoother than our own proposal.
