Press about Optimization Week

Here are the latest buzz about Optimization Week.


Web site critic says it's all about speed, accessibility
"Andy King's name is enough to strike terror into the heart of the toughest corporate IT executive. Just as restaurant, movie and theater reviewers often influence the reputation and impact of the things they critique, King wields a big club in his chosen field. He's a Web site critic." Mike Wendland, Detroit Free Press, Dec. 1, 2003.
Sluggish sites still dominate Web world
"Andy King's business is making Web sites work better - faster, easier to navigate, less frustrating to use. The Ann Arbor entrepreneur recently analyzed Web sites run by candidates in the 2004 presidential race, and he found some surprises. 'I knew they'd be overweight' King says, referring to the size of the files, which makes downloading sluggish. 'But I didn't think they'd be that fat.'" Mary Morgan, Ann Arbor News, 30 November 2003.
