We know people don’t come here to read about us. Ergo, we prefer to be very low-key about it if we’re lucky enough to get a media mention.
But increasingly, people we like have pointed out that we probably need to act like professionals and put a press kit of sorts on the site (apparently, some people find this to be very helpful). So, this is our very cursory stab at a one-stop shop for people who are curious about where GFY has been mentioned. We can’t be completely sure that we’ve covered everything, but thanks to our very alert, eagle-eyed readers, here is a pretty thorough sample.
