A Brief Blog Profile: ReadWrite
ReadWrite is a pretty complex tech news site. It covers the vast worlds of cloud, enterprise, hack, mobile, play, small business, social, and web.
ReadWrite formerly was known as ReadWriteWeb, which was founded April 2003 by New Zealander Richard MacManus. The site was relaunched as ReadWrite in Oct. 2012.
A very interesting recent post is LinkedIn’s Hunger Games: Will You Volunteer As Tribute?, which discusses a new profile tool that shows how you stack up against your colleagues and competition.
“If you’re familiar with the universe of The Hunger Games, LinkedIn, once a safe place to share news articles and network, has turned into some kind of digital Panem, and we are all now volunteering as tribute,” writes blogger Selena Larson. “Called How You Rank, the feature is a new part of Who’s Viewed Your Profile … How You Rank lets users see how popular their profiles are in relationship to other people in their network.”
