Big Tech CEOs Begin Their Day by Reading News Articles on This Aggregator Platform

The CEO of Google, Sundar Pichai, starts his morning by reading tech articles from a niche website, instead of Wall Street Journal and other tech websites. Sundar told Wired in his recent interview, that he likes reading articles from a site called Techmeme. It is a platform that collects and organizes news links from different big tech sites that publish tech news. Techmeme was founded in 2005 by Gabe Rivera and the aim of the website is to give a short summarized news to readers who don’t want to waste their time reading lengthy news articles. It is popular among tech experts of Silicon Valley but only a few people know it outside the tech world.

Many Big Tech CEOs Start Their Day by Reading News Articles on This Aggregator Platform

In an interview with a media outlet, Gabe Rivera said that the website receives hundreds to thousands of visitors. Techmeme is popular among tech execs because the site provides a to-the-point summary of the news people are looking for. There is absolutely no clickbait on the news as the news are covered with detailed headlines and are ranked according to the importance of news. There are also no extra videos and unnecessary ads on the site so the readers can have a smooth experience.

Sunday Pichai isn’t the only one who reads news from Techmeme. Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Meta, and other Meta executives like Head of Instagram also likes to give some part of their day to read news from Techmeme. Other regular readers of TechMeme include Microsoft CEO, Satya Nadella, chairman of LinkedIn Jeff Weiner and, Dick Costolo who was previously the CEO of Twitter. Some of the big investors like David Tisch who is an investor at VCs Boxgroup and TechStars has told Business Insider that he likes to read Techmeme. He says that is an easy way to read news without missing any major information.

Some of the tech owners and CEOs don’t read news from Techmeme but they have their own morning routines. The CEO of Apple, Tim Cook, says that his day starts with reading feedback emails from customers while Spotify’s CEO, David Elk, likes reading news and sometimes books to start his morning. However, Evan Spiegel, the CEO of Snapchat, likes reading news from Wall Street Journal and Financial Times in the morning.
