There is a LOT of content out there! Some of it (well actually the vast bulk of it) is a total waste of server space but equally there are some great articles, updates and informative news snippets that are worth a read. Trouble is, sorting the worthwhile reads from the content that is just going to waste your time is an all consuming job in it’s own right!
So, starting this week we’re going to do the heavy lifting for you and publish links to what we think is content that’s worth a read. As you might expect, the focus will be tech orientated but with some business and marketing content thrown in for good measure plus stuff we just think is interesting!
Published each Friday we hope this provides a useful list of reading material for the weekend! Have a good one!
