Does Read-out mantain a blog site?
We mantain three blog sites. One is on Googles Blogger platform Instsignpost.blogspot.com. This is mostly press releases for new products and other news. There are two on the WordPress platform, Instrumentsignpost.wordpress.com which has more editorial and sometimes research or details of new technologies. The second Wordpress blog is Instsignpostconf.wordpress.com which we use when we have a lot of releases from a single event, exhibition or conference.
