The Email Newsletter Brigade

Two years ago I would have laughed at the idea of writing a quick post to point out some email newsletters — after all, that’s not the way we get news now days. We have ADN, Twitter, RSS, Push notifications and on and on. Yet the email newsletters are the only ones that I never miss — they are great. Here are some that you should consider.


You are subscribed to this right, better yet you have the iOS app right? It’s fantastic. Dave Pell does an amazing job accumulating enough links everyday to keep your Instapaper queue overflowing.

The Brief

What Evening Edition is for news, The Brief is for tech news. Except you get the tech news first thing in the morning. This is a great way to get a handle on the day if you are going to be away from your RSS feed — at least it is for me. At a conference, away on vacation, but don’t want to miss out? Here is your solution.

The Round Down

This is a weekend newsletter with a more global (read: non-US centric) take on things. I’ve only been reading for a little while, but I do enjoy it quite a bit.

Now I Know

Dan Lewis’ newsletter is awesome. Short little stories that leave me with at least one thing I didn’t know before I read it. It’s like getting a Wikipedia summary from a random truly interesting page delivered to you everyday.

There’s four great newsletters to fill your inbox.
