I launched TechFruit April 2011 to try and put a British voice on all the technology, gadget, and start-ups news and gossip. So much of the technology-sector media machine is based in Silicon Valley, and so closely involved in the companies and VC firms based there – that I’m hoping TechFruit will offer a fresh perspective.
I have always been an avid follower of the likes of TechCrunch, GigaOm, VentureBeat, and more recently PandoDaily and have always been impressed by how they uncover so many new businesses, technologies, and ideas in ways that reporting in traditional media never could. Whilst TechCrunch does offer a UK site, however, these are all very US and Silicon Valley focused. I also enjoy the technology and gadget gossip blogs like Engadget, Gizmodo, and more recently The Verge – but again, whilst much of the news is international, it is all written from a US perspective.
