Uncommon news and information with a technical twist and some topics that are a bit out there. Enjoy...
LinkedIn is a source of cutting edge tech news from fascinating people that make it. Get inspired.
LinkedIn has evolved from a job networking site to something much greater and I hope will continue to grow into more of a news and information platform. The traditional media outlets are dead they just don't know it yet. I get my weather from an app and I really only need to see the radar to know what's up. Waiting and wading through commercials and pop ups adverts is a waste and a desperate attempt to monetize a couple seconds of valid content. Investigative reporting is all but gone, journalism has become a joke, paid political influence and other content so watered down as not to offend, just lulls and pacifies. But, if your time is valuable and you're tired of misinformation and redirection from what's really going on, you've probably already found new sources of information.
For tech news and events there is probably no better place than LinkedIn. I follow groups and many fascinating people for their perspectives, bleeding new technologies and inspiration. And, although I hope to never have look to work for another organization again, I stay plugged in to events and people I would like to work with for any of the several projects I have at hand. For me, LinkedIn is a way to learn from the advice of accomplished professionals and shortcut some of the hard tuition you'd pay in real life.
LinkedIn has almost a billion users worldwide. Here are some other demographics from Kinsta.com about the user base. If you don't have an account, get one it's free and it's valuable, whether you're looking to work, grow or stay informed.
