Who is Katie Marsal?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Up until recently, all articles on the AI front page were authored by Kasper Jade. Now they are all written by Katie Marsal. Could there really be a female Mac rumormonger? When will she post a mugshot in the AI Members gallery? Who is Katie Marsal? Does anybody here already have a crush on her?

For a second, I was going to suggest Katie might be v2.0, but not having met her, I'll presume human.
there were some synthetic posters trying to play at Turing a few years back, IIRC

The whole "ownership of AI" thing is mostly a ruse. There was that whole slaptech.com thing that was news a while ago, and slaptech.com no longer exists because it was just a front.

Kids at MacNN wanted press passes at the expos, and since they owned AI they were blacklisted. So they sorta laundered it through Slaptech. I heard about the whole press pass thing, and the rest just follows logically.

As far as the identities of the writers, I'm sure they're all pseudonyms. I would imagine that either MacNN kids or AI admins do the writing. Probably MacNN kids though.

You are wrong. Kasper is real. But you can guess he will never give you his identity.

Dood, you are so wrong it isn't worth discussing, but I don't hold it against ya =P

Anyway... Katie is a contributing editor.

I bet the next question is: 'Is she cute????'

Thanks for your response, Kasper. So why have you stopped writing and why does Katie pen all the stories?

I haven't stopped. We share the workload, along with others who contribute. You'll probably see several articles from me this week.

Best,

I look forward to reading the upcoming articles, regardless of author.

And the Brad fiasco was a product of his PMS?
