Notes about the compilation:.
[1] For this compilation of the first wave of media coverage about Sleepwalker, we utilized the U.S. Travel Assocation Designated Marketing Areas to group the coverage.
[2] These entries are gathered mainly from the Internet.
[3] Due to link maintenance costs and time, and the continuous removal of articles and photo galleries from Internet sites, we opted to offer a representative sample of links. All content referred to in the compilation is on file at artdesigncafe.
[4 - Updated] Due to time constraints and the extensive coverage, we were unable to complete some of our "2nd, 3rd and 4th level" web searches. These include the following Google search strings: Canada (1); Chinese (7); Egypt and Arabic (4); French (3); Japanese (1); Portuguese (2); Russian (2); Spanish (2); and USA (2). Additional searches include Indonesian, Spanish and Swiss newspaper networks. Further the international AP, Getty, and Reuters photo distribution networks should be looked at, as well as the international msn and yahoo websites.
[5] Some entries are of articles and photo galleries that were put up on a temporary basis and are no longer on the Internet. (Some Associated Press articles are taken down after a week or two.)
[6 - Updated] Additionally, the full range of offline databases, except for LexisNexis Academic NL should be searched.
[7] To quickly get an indication about a website’s traffic ranking, we referred to the Alexa toolbar.
[8] Details about a media source and website are an estimate, pulled from a variety of web resources, and taking into account the time and resources limitations of building a full-on international media/Internet coverage compilation.
[9] Internet searching is not like database searching. As with any search, there are a range of limitations. This is a "bottom-up" compilation, and we imagine there is a significant amount of Internet coverage that we were unable to locate.
[10] We stopped compiling articles starting with the 01 June 2014 date. It is expected that mentions particularly and articles will continue in the future.
[11 - Updated] Country list: 100 countries.
