STH Weekly Newsletter You Want to Subscribe in Q2 2023

STH Newsletter Q2 2023
STH Newsletter Q2 2023

Every Saturday, the best of STH is delivered directly to our subscriber’s inboxes. This weekly newsletter is something I do personally every week even when traveling (Hello from Taipei!) Over the last year, most have been done from the road. The goal of the newsletter that we started a few years ago was to update our readers with some highlights for the week. Not everyone has time to read STH every day. The newsletter is a way to quickly stay updated with what is happening (and what will happen soon.)

What is in the STH Newsletter and how are features chosen?

You can check out a recent edition here for a flavor. The STH Newsletter has settled on a format that has three basic sections:

  1. Recap of the week
  2. Top five stories of the week
  3. A preview of the STH content plan for the next week

Each week I reflect upon what we covered that I felt had the biggest industry impact or the key theme(s) of coverage for STH that week.

Then there are the top five stories over the past seven days in the STH Newsletter. Over time, this section turned into my top 5 picks from the week. Usually, I try to highlight reviews and then also a few pieces of other content that I personally liked best.

We constantly have companies trying to advertise to the thousands of readers signed up for our newsletter, but I want this to be something that is just based on the STH team’s input from week to week.

Finally, I like to add a little preview of what is coming on STH the following week. Sometimes we cannot hint at embargoed news. Usually, at the end of the newsletter, I try to add a few hints about big industry events and upcoming content on STH.

The end goal is to provide a perspective for STH readers on topics that if they are away on vacation or for some other reason, they can quickly get caught up.

Final Words

I hope this is a useful way to keep current on STH even if you do not have time to drop by every day.

We are not promoting the newsletter via overlays and pop-ups. Those are very effective, but they have a negative impact on the reader’s experience. I do not like them, so as long as I have a say, we are not going to have newsletter signup overlays. I run STH as something I would want to visit daily even if I did not work on it. Likewise, the STH Weekly Newsletter is designed to be something I would want to receive. It is a simple formula that all too often is disregarded in the tech website space.


  1. “Welcome to the STH Newsletter 2023 June 17 Edition

    What a week. I was in San Francisco for the first half of the week. I am writing this now from Los Angeles (after a stop in Austin) WHERE I AM GETTING MARRIED In A FEW HOURS. That trip to SF was for a major AMD data center launch event”….(My added emphasis).



    In a Friday meeting in Midtown Manhattan in August 2009, one co-worker asked what I was doing that weekend: “Installing Wife 2.0″…Who’s greatest “log file” update so far, on our 10th anniversary: “Ten years. Haven’t killed each other. OK”
