Would it not make sense to read a technology magazine online? The Internet, the mother of the most innovative period in human history, is itself a sharing technology. That is why online technology magazines are so appropriate. With online technology magazines, you not only stay connected to the tech world through the most technological medium in existence. Rather, you get to learn about the latest technology trends in real time.
The most obvious advantage of online technology magazines is that they cover technology. We all know that Peter Thiel asserts there is a decline in human innovation. If we look at major innovations that require large organizations, like the atomic bomb or the Apollo program, then he may be right. But they have been replaced with millions of innovators who work independently from each other. Their changes, by themselves, may not be earth shattering, but they can collaborate to make bigger changes. Those changes add up. Reading online technology magazines keeps you informed.
Then there are those fascinated by the technology industry as a whole. Again, an online technology magazine can keep you informed about the drama in Silicon Valley. Some drama is caused by a disciplinarian CEO, trying to reign in a company in the notoriously libertine valley. Other drama may be caused by a rogue venture capitalist. Still others may be a shareholder revolt. And every so often, you get a guy or girl who has a brilliant idea that shakes the tech world to its core, and sets the business table again. Online technology magazines cover that, too.
Finally, you get all of this data in real time. Because online technology magazines use the Internet, they take advantage of a 24 hour news cycle. Often, they use a web of informants and free lance reporters to drive the news cycle.
