You Probably Don’t Want to Read Through All of This News…

But … I do.

They don’t call me the Internet’s Managing Editor for Nothing.

I write NextDraft, a quick, pithy, entertaining, rundown of the daily news. I’ve got 75 tabs open right now so you can close yours and go back to living your best life. The newsletter is free. It’s easy to unsubscribe. You’ll be the hit of your next dinner party. Look, I’m a longtime, twitchy, news-addicted, internet junkie, and really, I can’t stop. So you might as well take advantage and enjoy the output of a mind donated to the Internet.

Seriously, I’m plugged in.

And don’t let that suave, cool cat above make you think I’m new at this. The real hair is a lot grayer (but when your newsletter has no business model, it’s doesn’t make fiscal sense to keep paying illustrators to appropriately age your image).

Trust me, I’ve been doing this a long time.

Another nice benefit of subscribing to NextDraft is that you’ll be in excellent company.

If you like technology, ideas and culture, subscribe to the mind of Dave Pell.

I know, I know. The Internet’s mega companies have spent many years and many more billions trying to create an algorithm that can satisfy but not overwhelm your content consumption needs. Well, here’s some breaking news:

I Am The Algorithm.

If all that doesn’t knock you out, I have to wonder if I’m not better off without you as a subscriber. But if you’re convinced, your new, favorite newsletter is just a click away via the big button below.
