Our customary periodic makeover has a sense of urgency like none that has preceded it.
Here at Mediolana, it’s no secret that we love our blogging – and the rest of the world seems to agree. Within months of its inception, mediolana.wordpress.com had already ascended into the 1% of Technorati blogs; had been featured multiple times on WordPress’s own showcase of its best content; and via associated social media channels had started to amass some seriously influential followers, which today number entities from some of the world’s biggest international news networks.
However, it only recently came to our attention that a certain German industrial conglomerate was reading the very blog that you are presently viewing: no less a company than Siemens AG has referenced us in an article on young inventors featuring Elif Bilgin, the Istanbul teenager who created a new type of plastic out of banana peels – and whom we wrote about way back in September 2013.
We’re honoured that such a doyen of the European and global industrial scene is tuning into our blog – and particularly on a matter of genuine import, such as humanity’s relationship with the environment. As we sometimes say in this part of London: Schönen Dank!
