SlackerNews started as a way to keep up-to-date on the content submitted by passionate engineers, designers, scientists, and movers and shakers within the tech community without refreshing HackerNews every five minutes. Since then, it has grown to curating and categorizing content according to the type of story, bringing another lens through which to view this great resource.


SlackerNews aims to become the equivalent of a trade magazine for the startup and technology industries: a place to keep pace with the cutting edge, and trends likely to affect your business and career. The advent of Machine Learning and AI provide rich analysis capabilities that are transforming the publishing industry and ultimately the world. Come help us build the future!
