The Obligatory “Top 5” Blog Posts of 2013

What would a New Year be without some sort of obligatory “top something list”?  Here at Information Discovery Digest we are going to provide you; our valued readers, a look at the Top 5 blog posts by readership (not personal opinion) for the year 2013 and a shameless pat on the back to all of those who assisted us with the blog this year.  A sincere thank you.  Drum roll please;

Looking forward to what’s in store in 2014. In the New Year I’d like to focus some pieces on the unique individuals HAYSTACKID has on staff that make up the DNA of our company.  I’d also like to look forward to having some more pieces written by our team members and executives.  With that, wishing you all a happy and healthy New Year.
