Well, it's not a fundamentally bad idea - but 13 times for one story is 
excessive. :-)

The categories also seem a bit odd.

For example "Computer Graphics", "Film", "Risk Management" and "Visual 
Effects" all have a single identical entry (Industrial Light & Magic).

The same for "Apparel Industry" and "Customer Relationship Management".

There are two categories for "Simulation", with Carmanah in both (and 
Resolver Systems being the only other entry in the second).

"GIS and Mapping" appears as a category three times, with a single 
identical entry each time.

It seems like the page would be improved by some rationalisation / 
cleanup of the categories.

All the best,
