Where do you get your tech news? While we know that we provide an awesome behind the scenes look at what’s going on in that mythical place called Startup Land, KillerStartups is not and was never meant to be a news site. We’re more interested in giving you an in depth perspective on the people, right?
But that doesn’t mean we’re not interested in the news as well. (Where do you think we get some of our best stories?) Staying up-to-date on what’s going on in tech world is essential for us and definitely essential for you, startup founder.
While Techcrunch and Mashable are obviously the industry standards, there are thousands of articles published every day on an ever-expanding number of sites. Keeping up with what’s going on across all of them is something you surely don’t have time for and yet it’s super important.
Enter Techi, a bare-bones stripped down and yet still pretty to look at feed of everything that’s going on in tech. Techi combs all of the important sites out there (Bloomberg News, Techcrunch, Reuters, Washington Post, BBC, The Next Web, etc.) as well as some I’ve actually never heard of (Fast Company, Medium, GigaOM, etc.) to bring you all the info you could possibly need.
Utility doesn’t mean a sacrifice in design.
One thing that drives me crazy time and time again is how many sites just don’t give a shit about design, so I’m extremely grateful to Techi for NOT DOING THAT. Their site is super simple and super easy to navigate.
The landing page has a detailed navigation bar on the left, a simplified one at the top, and then a list of titles in an easy to read font. The website is directly underneath the title of each article, in a blue that tells me it’s a link without being obnoxious about it. To the right of each title is an icon, so I can scroll through quickly if I’m looking for a specific source.
Good source for industry experts.
Techi also publishes original content and accepts submissions. That’s great news for those of you who are interested in building your reputations as industry experts. One of the major moves you should be making is getting articles published on tech blogs about whatever it is you’re focused on. Techi could be a great opportunity, so why not give it a shot?
Regardless of if you’re interested in writing or not, Techi is a great source for all of your tech needs. Let them comb the world wide web so you don’t have to.
