cDc members and their work have graced the pages of the world's finest publications (and some pretty crappy ones, too). Some of them even get it right. Other mentions of us are borderline (or outright) libelous. That's what we get for being so cool.

Please note that this list is not exhaustive, nor is it intended as an endorsement of any of these publications. Also, for brevity, we're only including English-language press coverage.

Periodicity is the quality of occurring at regular intervals or periods (in time or space) and can occur in different contexts.
