Well this one fizzled. You know that story where Nick Denton of Valleywag said he’d found Princess Diana? Well, they sent someone in to pull off her burka, and whoops — Nick got it wrong. Turns out it was a woman named Sherrie Robinson who is originally from New Zealand but now lives in Qatar and works in marketing for a telecom company and does some part-time acting on the side. See here. I guess you can see how they made the mistake. There is an uncanny resemblance. Just goes to show, you can’t believe everything you read, even in high-class sites like Nick Denton’s Valleywag. Nick Denton, who is British but lives in New York, is 42 years old.
