February 2, 2018 - It is with a mixture of emotion that we must inform you that Interceder will cease its service over the coming weeks. For nearly a decade we have been helping you find relevant information across thousands of news and social sources, to keep you abreast of the latest news. We’re a small team of two who have run Interceder outside of our regular day jobs and are intensely proud of what we managed to accomplish over the years. Through a lack of time to maintain the site and growing costs associated with acquiring, indexing, analysing and hosting content we will be shutting down Interceder for good. All things reach a natural end, but we could not be more grateful for the way you made us part of your day, so instead of saying goodbye we would just like to say thank you!
