Internet can be a marvellous place, but sometimes too much stuff is written on too many websites, making it hard to keep up with the constant stream of news. Sometimes, it can get even harder to tell apart those pieces of information that are really relevant from those that, well, are not. This is why this Monday we are kicking off our weekly reading list of articles published all over the net in the last seven days.
Our goal is to give you a place to catch up on what we consider to be the most important news, op-eds, blog articles, and papers that you may have missed during what must have been a hectic last week. We only select quality articles that we regard as worth your time. However, the fact that the net is a messy place also means that there may be more, and there may be better: this is why if you don’t find your favourite articles in here, we suggest you give us a heads up.
Finally, within our reading list you will never find stuff behind a paywall. There are a lot of incredibly detailed articles that can be found online if only you are subscribed to professional services (or even just pay-to-read newspapers), and they could surely be worth your time – but our purpose is to deliver the best stuff right at your door, not to nudge you into paying for reading.
