Sarah Ruth Lacy (born December 29, 1975) is an American technology journalist[1] and author. Lacy received her B.A. in literature from Rhodes College.[2]

She is noted for an interview with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg at the 2008 South by Southwest Interactive festival during which some members of the audience staged what has been characterized as a revolt against Lacy.[3][4]

In 2012, Lacy founded[5] technology news site PandoDaily with a reported $2.5m investment from investors including Marc Andreessen, Peter Thiel, Tony Hsieh, David Sze, Jim Breyer, Reid Hoffman, Chris Dixon and Josh Kopelman. The site consists of a daily technology blog and a monthly event series entitled "PandoMonthly".

Lacy is the former co-host of web video show Yahoo! Tech Ticker[6] and was a columnist at BusinessWeek.[7]

Lacy was a columnist at TechCrunch until November 19, 2011.[8]

She is the author of 2 books: Once You're Lucky, Twice You're Good, which also goes under the title The Stories of Facebook, Youtube and Myspace, and Brilliant, Crazy, Cocky: How the Top 1% of Entrepreneurs Profit from Global Chaos.

A series of emails from 2012 indicate Sarah Lacy was involved in a dispute regarding an event PandoDaily hosted in 2012 at event space Cross Campus in Los Angeles. [9]

On November 20, 2014, Lacy said that Uber, the car service, goes after journalists. [10]

Lacy is married to Geoffrey Ellis, a photographer.
