Hey Sports Tech Fans,
The new format will contain the Top 13 stories of the week as that is the point at which email clients clip the newsletter.
Do you have any thoughts on the new format? I’d love to hear them!
I am still working on a permanent home for the other 90ish stories I find related to sports tech each week, but for now our Reddit or Twitter page is a great way to get the stories on a daily basis.
Have a great sporting weekend,
Will
