Episode 8: The New Stack

Alex Williams and Richard MacManus of The New Stack say their readers prefer longer, more technical pieces — not quick reads.

Since its debut in 2014, The New Stack has served up a unique blend of research, reporting and domain expertise that offers an impressive level of context and depth on modern architectures, operations and software development. 

Alex Williams is founder and editor in chief, and a longtime technology journalist who wrote for TechCrunch, SiliconAngle and ReadWriteWeb prior to starting The New Stack. Speaking of ReadWriteWeb, Richard MacManus started the weblog in 2003 and built it into one of the world’s most influential technology news sites before selling it in 2011. He recently joined The New Stack as a Senior Editor. 

On this episode of the Look Left @ Marketing Podcast, the longtime colleagues and friends discuss tech’s extraordinary evolution from the early days of the cloud in 2006 to where we are today and, most importantly, where The New Stack is going in the years ahead.
