Since the inception of ASE, Charles has established a reputation for high-quality reporting, focusing relentlessly on covering all happenings in the search engine space. Although the Alts form his main subject, he also devotes some space to the mainstream search engines, providing a fairly complete picture. He's now seen as an authority in this space even by the MSM, as recent mentions in Newsweek and Wired indicate.
Congratulations, Charles! And Best of Luck!
