The Kernel, ein noch recht junges Tech-Teamblog aus London, kommt nach Deutschland, wie Milo Yiannopoulos, Gründer und Chefredakteur von The Kernel, heute in einer Email verkündet.
Since we launched, almost a year ago, in London, we have realised that it wasn’t just London crying out for proper journalism in tech, but that other cities feel under-served too. In fact, we’ve been inundated with requests from other European capitals who feel their local tech bloggers aren’t cutting the mustard. Of all those cities, Berlin is perhaps the one with the most pressing need. You might have noticed a bit more German content recently. Well, this is why.
The local blogs in Germany are – there’s no kind way to put this – widely ridiculed, despite some talented local writers. Start-ups tell us they are desperately frustrated by the lack of mid-market publications in their industry and with the lack of professionalism from the blogs, who act like divas but write like drudges.
