As most of you know, we have a lot of appreciation for our partnership with John Cantarella’s group at TIME.com. They were our first publisher partner and really helped us navigate to our current plug-in that runs on their site as well as a number of leading publisher and micro-publisher sites. Through Adam Embick at TIME, we were introduced to John McIntyre who runs Real Clear Politics.
I emailed John about adding Sphere Related Content to his site beginning of this year. A few months went by and then one day I got a call from John as I was leaving the office. These are the kind of calls you get when your luck is in alignment with the moon and stars. John agreed to add our plug-in to his site with a few customized features to showcase contextually relevant content from mainstream media and blog sites they frequently display in their links.
Real Clear Politics is one of those venerable brands that makes you feel special with whom to be a partner. Real Clear Politics has a long tradition of balanced journalism excellence. Embracing the blogosphere is yet another example of their open and progressive approach to creating the most compelling user experience for their readers.
