We’re incredibly lucky that every day we get to read, absorb, and follow a whole host of talented journalists as they report on the ins and outs of the wider technology and business world. Obviously what we do means we need to be in the know, but it’s a wonderful bonus when you actually enjoy what you read, and appreciate the journalist behind it.
CEW has put together a list of talented journalists we highly recommend you follow.
Yes, as today is Ada Lovelace Day, they all have one very clear thing in common - but what they also share is that we respect them, they are all incredibly talented, and they are reporting on and in a very male-dominated industry.
This Ada Lovelace Day we’d like you to expand your world, and follow the work of these great journalists, as another way of seeing a different view or expanding your horizons. So why not join us in following the work of this list of talented reporters - and read their great work for the other 364 days of the year.
