Apologies and self-promotion

Last month we started a Developer's blog, only to not write anything on it. I'm glad to see that our professional blog works in the same way as our personal ones - sporadic updates with intermittent apologies about not writing much. This is probably the point at which I promise to write more updates, then.

So, I promise we'll write more updates. We do have an excuse, though: we've all been beavering away on new networking features on our sister site, Here's a bit of professionally written promotional text to explain what it's all about:

The Network is the business networking tool that allows games industry professionals to connect with each other. It's the community that enables you to find out who you need to know and then make contact with them.

Unlike other social networks, it's not just about talking to your existing contacts. It's an opportunity to get in touch with new people across the globe to create genuine business opportunities. The general public cannot see what is happening within the network and you can be sure that the contacts you make will be relevant to your business - the business of games.

If you've come over all intrigued and whatnot, and you're part of the gaming industry, you should sign up.
