The Internet is primarily driven by technology. It should be no big surprise then that technology sites are among some of the most popular visited websites. If your like me, you have a few of your own personal favorite tech sites, the ones you visit often, perhaps subscribe to. I have my favorites, however every now and then I will venture out to see what other technology sites might have to offer.
Lately I am starting to notice a disturbing trend however, not just with tech sites, but with many of the top sites, and worse with many of the up and coming sites. Maybe it’s just me. It seems to me that many of these sites are reporting on all the same stories.
It’s the same story with a different headline. In a world on the brink of information overload is this really what we need?
Do you have a favorite technology site that you like to visit? Here is a list of 40 of the top technology sites . We will call this a little tech experiment and see if there is any truth what so ever in this statement.
Pick a couple different technology sites from the list and read the headlines. Are many of the stories the same? If so perhaps we need to look at this with a fresh pair of eyes.
This is why I decided to curate…
