Bridging the IT gap between rising business demands and ageing tools

Congratulations to Struan Bartlett and Nick Gilbert, former colleagues of The Register in our VNU days, for their success in creating NewsNow, a spanking gorgeous UK news aggregation site. After seven short months, NewsNow has hit half a million page views per month, a useful milestone which will do no harm when it comes to flogging ads. NewsNow is doubling in size every seven weeks, according to “the boys behind the top UK portal site”. Not bad at all for a company set up on a couple of shoestrings. The Register notes a steady increase in visitors coming in from NewsNow! We’ve even received a protest from one reader, who complained of seeing our stories twice – once on our site, and once on NewsNow. Well we think our stories are worth reading twice. So keep up the good work, NewsNow. ®
