Isn’t the end of summer supposed to be lazy and uneventful? I think those “lazy, hazy days of summer” are over forever! It’s certainly the case at Workspot. In addition to our own press announcements, we’ve been featured in a variety of publications over the last few weeks, so in case you missed some of this coverage, here’s a summary with pointers to articles I think you’ll find valuable.
