Signed up for this newsletter today.
I used to work with Alan at Yahoo! and from time to time we have some coffee and discuss tech, people and news. Mostly though we will talk about news and where we consume it these days – or listen to it since we both like podcats.
I used to subscribe to the FT weekend but found I wasn’t always reading it and figured I should read more books. Most of my news then is from online sources and podcasts but lately I have been actually listening to less news and getting the majority of my updates from Inside.com – I like the email format with links. I also read Pro Rata and Term Sheet everyday.
From time to time I will use the Washington Post and New York Times app but not enough that I am compelled to pay for them.
What Alan and I talk about most though is there isn’t anything super amazing coming out of Asia that I look to as my news source. Hopefully with projects like this we will see some change and find truly quality newsrooms that provide content the way most of us consume it.
Alan recently got some $ from FB and is beginning to build things out, you can read all about here :: https://www.thesplicenewsroom.com/about-us/.
