is the brainchild of Peter Shankman (aka skydiver
on Twitter). Embracing the philosophy that "Everyone is an expert on something," HARO matches reporters and authors up with sources through the simple process of a sign-up form. Seems like a good match for all the experts here on MeFi.
In Shankman's words:
"On March 20th, 2008, I sent out the first HARO via email, after
moving it off FaceBook. It was a query from the Chicago Tribune,
and it went to 491 people.
This afternoon, I'm sending out the HARO email to over 10,100
members. It has over 15 queries, from more than one country, and
goes to members in over 45 countries."
