Like most entrepreneurs, I started off reading about the tech industry with TechCrunch, and shortly after discovered other big blogs like Engadget and small ones like Fred Wilson’s AVC. Soon I needed Google Reader to manage all these websites, and my favorite reader was Flipboard. Google retiring Google Reader was probably the first time I felt genuinely disappointed by tech — it’s not often change feels like a step backwards in this industry.
Its replacement, feedly, has reliability problems and doesn’t have as nice of an interface. So I continued to use Flipboard but depended on its Technology section to get the bulk of my industry news; and then would go to individual websites Web 1.0 style to fill out the rest. I was reading less — especially the smaller blogs — but this might have been OK as I had less time for reading.
Then I discovered Techmeme, a website that aggregates what it thinks are the best news and analyses for the tech industry that day into one page.
