5 ways keep up with the world’s fastest changing industry

It’s no secret that the tech sector is in constant flux, but for some of us it is hard to keep tabs on the industry that is shaping the world we live in. To help those who feel out of the loop here are 5 resources to shine a light onto what’s going on in tech in 2016.

5.    Wait but Why

  • “New Posts Every Sometimes”
  • Quirky posts (with hilarious graphics) from Tim Urban and Andrew Finn about things like AI and humans colonizing Mars. This blog is great for learning the theoretical side of technology, as long as you’re prepared for long form posts. They also tackle subjects like “How to Name a Baby” and “Everything You Don’t Know About Tipping” (a la Freakonomics).
  • Elon Musk and his companies are a big source of inspiration for Tim. (Elon had invited Tim to interview himself.) Tim has aggregated all of his Elon Musk posts into a Kindle Book, for those interested buy here.

3.    The Tim Ferris Show

2.    Recode.net

  • In my opinion, Recode is the strongest voice in tech journalism. They publish news, analysis, and podcast interviews among other things. You can learn about the latest acquisitions, product launches, and even some commentary on their news site. The site is great, however Recode’s podcast lineup is what really sets it apart from the competition. For tech newbies, Too Embarrassed to Ask is a great listen to give you what you need to know about the tech sector. For more detailed interviews be sure to check out Recode/Decode, where executive editor Kara Swisher picks the brains of some of the most influential people in tech.

1.    Product Hunt

  • From it’s about page: “Product Hunt surfaces the best new products, every day. It's a place for product-loving enthusiasts to share and geek out about the latest mobile apps, websites, hardware projects, and tech creations.”
  • This site is an Internet aggregator and is the best way to keep up with releases from developers.
