All your Sports Tech news in one place, covering topics like AR/VR, Data Analytics, eSports, Live Streaming, Sports Betting, Wearables, etc.
Hey Sports Tech fans,
Long time readers will know that this newsletter has taken a few different forms in the 12+ months I have been running it.
With the sheer volume of interesting stories I find every week, 100+, it’s clear that putting them all in one and for the last number of months in two emails a week is unsustainable and sloppy.
So I have decided to take a different approach yet again!
This week I have decided to just post the top 15 stories of the week in the newsletter.
I am still curating the 100+ stories and I am coming up with ways of how best to share them with those interested.
So stay tuned for an update on that!
For now all I will ask is that you provide me some feedback on this new direction.
At the very bottom of the email, below my profile pic and name there is a thumbs up and thumbs down button.
If you like the idea of a more curated newsletter, let me know with a thumbs up.
If you hate it and want all of the stories like the good old days, give me a thumbs down.
If you can’t see the thumbs up and down, your email client has clipped the message so at the end you should see something like “view entire message” hit that and then you can give me a thumbs up or down like the old days of the gladiators in Roman times.
Thats all for this week.
Have a great sporting weekend,
Will
