online resources

I thought I’d provide a peek at some of the daily reading I do when I get up every morning. Here are some of the most valuable publications out there.

Ben Evans works at Andreessen Horowitz, a venture capital firm in Silicon Valley that invests in software companies. He taps his connections and experiences to produce a weekly newsletter called Benedict’s Newsletter that’s jammed with interesting news and insights.

Brooklyn Street I love street art and this newsletter is my go to.

You need to read The Economist . Their articles on world business news are essential. The magazine also has a unique style and tone that is traditional but very in-tune with the world today.

Women’s Wear Daily — WWD does the best job about talking about clothing trends in the United States and globally. As clothing trends mimic a lot of other trends, I find WWD keeps me current

Scott Monty’s newsletter The Full Monty provides some nice weekly insights. I like how Scott combines the wisdom of classic literature with modern business realities.

Nate Silver’s FiveThirtyEight is awesome. Good insights on polling, the mechanics of applied math, sports, politics and burritos.  What could be better?

Booth School of Business – I look at anything coming out of The University of Chicago’s business school. It’s an amazing resource for marketing information.

In a similar vein, the MIT’s Sloan Management Review is very good. Take-it-to-the-bank research there.

What are your favorite online resources? Let’s share ideas. What am I missing?
