eRepublik was mentioned in the RT online site. RT, previously known as Russia Today, is the first Russian 24/7 English-language news channel which brings the Russian view on global news.
The article talks about the Life In Technology (LINT) event, where Alexis Bonte, CEO of eRepublik Labs, was one of the speakers.
eRepublik recently made it to the front-page of the Dutch newspaper Noorhollands Dagblad, with an interesting article under the headline “Poland occupies Netherlands” about the enthusiasm for eRepublik in Eastern Europe and the Balkans. This story was written by the journalist Joost van Egmond.
