I have actually started the long-overdue update post to cover all the stuff that has been going on here at Distilled (including growing to 13 of us in the now-slightly-crowded office). Before I finish that off and get back to the main task of writing about search engines and things, some more timely news - we’re in The Telegraph this morning!

The Telegraph

Over the last 10 days or so, I have been helping out a guy called Matthew Rushton who runs Mediator Magazine and Mediator Directory after being introduced by Richard Tyler, Enterprise Editor of The Telegraph.

  8. @John - sorry - missed your comment before. I actually wasn't familiar with bizwiki until Richard introduced me to them.
