In 2013, knowing what's changing in technology is required
to understand the cultural currents and business events
reshaping the world.
If you've been watching the tech industry evolve,
it won't surprise you that social networks enable political revolutions,
brand new companies can acquire millions of customers in months,
or the world's most valuable company built
that wealth on products that didn't exist five years ago.
Techmeme is the foremost source for tracking these changes.
By presenting a summary of the day's essential reports and
analysis on a single page,
Techmeme has become the technology news site of record
for people both within and beyond the industry.
Techmeme accomplishes this the only way possible:
by linking to stories from all around the web.
Spotlighting the writings of reporters, commentators,
and industry players from across the media and industry landscape
provides the only effective means of offering a comprehensive view.
And by doing this well, we spare readers the impossible
task of monitoring an abundance of news sites, tweets, and status updates.
Techmeme was founded in 2005 by Gabe Rivera as an automated
news curation service, like Google News, but focused
on the leading edge of technology. Starting in 2008, we
introduced human editors
to complete the editorial process, and have now assembled
the team presented on the right.
Our experience leads us to believe that
a thoughtful combination of both algorithmic
and human editing offers the best means for curating
in a space as broad as technology.
Today, Techmeme remains independent,
bootstrapped, and privately held,
a point of differentiation in an increasingly
complicated tech media landscape.
Two unique opportunities exist for companies
seeking to promote their products or jobs on Techmeme. More information is

Techmeme discovers news sites through a process similar
to that used to select individual stories: it analyzes links and mentions across the web.
