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. Since we started the newsletter, STH has grown to include more writers. That has enabled us to cover more companies and increase our review cadence considerably. We have also branched out to do series like our STH Deep Learning and AI Q3 2019 Interview Series. In 2019, we are now running at over twice the number of reviews and content pieces per week compared to our 2018 pace. Subscribing to the STH weekly newsletter is an easy way to stay atop of the news. Since Q3 2019 has some major news lining up in August (for example, the AMD EPYC 7002 “Rome” launch) with shows and announcements, even if you regularly visit the main site, it is worthwhile subscribing so you do not miss anything.
What is in the STH Newsletter and how are features chosen?
You can check out our latest edition here for a flavor. The STH Newsletter has settled on a format that has three basic sections:
- Recap of the week
- Top five stories of the week
- 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.
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. In 2018 when STH averaged around two reviews per week, we usually featured those reviews plus a few exciting pieces of news. Now that we are doing, on average over four reviews per week as I noted in my STH Q1 2019 Update A Letter from the Editor, and we are covering more trade shows and events, this has become an even more challenging task.
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. Over the next 10 days, STH is going to cover a wide range of topics, you may miss something big if you are not checking the main site every day.
Subscribe to the STH Newsletter
Subscribing to the newsletter is easy. Here is the form.
We are not selling your e-mail addresses and MailChimp is managing everything at this point so you can subscribe and unsubscribe from the list as you want.
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 are bad for readers. 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.
Get ready for next week, it is going to be a doozy.
