There are a lot of options out there. Platforms are being created to let anyone create a great newsletter. Brands are being built on top of newsletters. Individuals are starting their own more personal newsletters. Which ones are great? And why?
- This is by far my favorite tech newsletter (other than Product Hunt's) because it infuses current events, tech news, and awesome voice (it's freaking hilarious). They also are quite straightforward and self-depreciating in regards to their sponsorships too, which I find refreshing.I'm a fan of The Hustle as well. They've crafted a clear voice, one that's willing to say things that might be controversial.The Hustle is excellent but only if you are American 🇺🇸 It has a good balance of tech and every-day articles and I like the casual tone. Just be aware that half the content is irrelevant to non-USA readers, so if you live somewhere else there are probably better options.
- Reliably surfaces articles that make me smarter. It's the only newsletter I leave in my inbox to read in my down time.Shocked this hasn't been recommended yet. Great curation, wide range of topics, and to the point.
- Late to the party, but here's one more recommendation. This newsletter offers thought-provoking and excellently curated content on exponential technologies and their impact on society, economy and politics. It gives you a hefty dose of tech in a well-rounded context (as technology doesn't exist in isolation). (I do work with the team now, but was a fan of EV long before I started working with Azeem) Kevin Kelly and Mike Butcher love it, too http://www.exponentialview.co/ne...
- Essentials is an interesting new (free) offering for people in the business/tech world designed to help keep track of only the most important news for up and coming tech trends. It uses a smart machine learning algorithm to identify the most influential authors and publishers in particular fields and then curates their posts into themes to save people the time of dragging through the online content "noise" manually, and surfaces only the most critical news in particular topics.
