Where does your business want to be seen? Well if you work for a technology business that is B2B, I guess on business technology news sites, which are a great source of information.
Below is a list of what we think are among the most influential and must-read US tech publications that break news, cover business insights, articles, reviews, latest developments and products, and boast circulations (noted below where available) in their millions.
Ars Technica was founded in 1998 when Founder & Editor-in-Chief Ken Fisher announced his plans for starting a publication devoted to technology that would cater to what he called “alpha geeks”: technologists and IT professionals. Ken’s vision was to build a publication with a simple editorial mission: be “technically savvy, up-to-date, and more fun” than what was currently popular in the space. In the ensuing years, with formidable contributions by a unique editorial staff, Ars Technica became a trusted source for technology news, tech policy analysis, breakdowns of the latest scientific advancements, gadget reviews, software, hardware, and nearly everything else found in between layers of silicon. Circulation: 29 million.
