What are the best independent newsletters you subscribe to?

After feeling like I was drowning in information between news websites, blogs and Twitter, I've found myself increasingly turning towards curated newsletters delivered to my inbox on the topics I care most about from interesting people in the field. Specifically, I'm interested in reading about startup funding news and advice, consumer technology trends and political economy -- although I'm open to reading about new topics too! Here's a couple I already subscribe to: 1/ tech/marketing/french politics by Liam Boogar - 2/ general news roundup by Lauren Holliday - 3/ news and commentary on voice computing by Matt Hartman - 4/ tech-focused news from Benedict Evans - 5/ business models/political economy/society by Azeem Azhar - I found the majority of these via the Revue discover tool which is awesome:

    Silicon Valley happenings in a sharp, witty, tidy little package. The best writing I've ever seen in a newsletter hands down.

    Pretty much the only newsletter that keeps my attention from title to footer. Entertaining, insightful, more like a friend than a newsletter.
    Do they also have a Slack group?

    Fun weekly newsletter with personality.
    Probably one of the best-written newsletters I'm reading. It comes with links to awesome tech finds and cool miscelanea, curated with humor and much wit.
    I think this is the only newsletter that gives you the weirdest stories that you're going to read the whole week. It has interesting concepts and tools that you don't see shared in many other tech newsletters. And it makes you laugh. :)

    This email newsletter/blog doesn't really fit into the category of news and trends, but reading it will expand your mind beyond the usual content you see all over the web. Curated by Maria Popova, it might include art, literature, interesting tidbits from across the spectrum. It's my favorite way to step outside my own "filter bubble."

    Curated startup knowledge, inspiration & background stories

    I run Startup Watching! It goes out twice a week, and unlike a lot of the others here it's focused less on news and more on background stories from other in-the-trenches startups. It has about 10,000 subscribers, and each issue has 5 links to stories and inspiration.

    Hacker Newsletter

    Best of Hacker News in your inbox every Friday.

    I've been following Hacker Newsletter for 8 years now. It's essentially a weekly curation of the top Hacker News articles made by Kale Davis. What I like the most about it is that it always has content that I can share with my geeky-but-non-hardcore-programmer friends, and the top picks are usually super impressive information. I can't recommend it enough. It's my favorite newsletter along with PH's.
