Introducing “Getting the News”

People have been finding, consuming, and talking about news for centuries — but the in the last 10 years we’ve dramatically changed how we interact with it.

At, we spend a lot of time thinking and talking about how we can improve the way that people find, consume, and talk about news. These brainstorms tend to move our thinking forward, but over the course of the last few months, our most meaningful conversations have happened (as Steve Blank would say) “outside of the building.”

We talk to a lot of brilliant people about the way that they use news, and it occurred to us that others might find these conversations as fascinating as we do. With that in mind, we’re pleased to launch a new series on the Blog: "Getting the News.”

Each week, we’ll share some of the most interesting conversations that we’ve had with industry experts like Robin Sloan and Khoi Vinh. But we’re also casting a wide net. In the weeks ahead we’ll share responses from university presidents, journalists using social media, and our parents (you read that right). The more we know about how people read the news, the better prepared we’ll be to make the best news experience available.

Stay tuned with your tool of choice (RSS, Twitter, Tumblr).
