Look Who’s Talking About Herdict!

It seems Herdict has been getting a lot of attention lately…so much so that perhaps Shep (our beloved mascot) is starting to get a big head.

First it was BoingBoing; now Herdict is getting mentioned all over the world! Here’s a sampling of where we’ve been spotted these past couple of weeks:

Shanghaiist, a popular group blog for Shanghai residents, noted that Herdict reports for YouTube’s block in China had been pouring in.

-On a similar note, the Wall Street Journal noted Herdict data in its report on the YouTube block.

-Herdict received its first mention in Moroccan press; popular blog eMarrakech explained Herdict and how it works in a French-language blog post.

Professor Sheizaf Rafaeli of Haifa University’s Center for the Study of Information and Society has explained Herdict to our Hebrew-speaking users in this article for Israeli site

-MIT’s Technology Review has given Herdict a positive review here.

And last but not least, Thomas Crampton of Huffington Post gave us a lovely review just yesterday!

We’re paying attention – let us know if you plan to write about Herdict, and we’ll be happy to answer any questions you might have!
