14 Must Read Tech Stories

Heyo Hacker Noon readers! We’ve published 216 stories so far in September, and I curated this list of 14 under-appreciated stories. They cover the tech industry as a whole, trends in how to build great products, an essay on how technology’s exponential growth could impact our future, the state of venture investment, a case for scaling by hiring “business people,” and a couple people vouching for their cities as the location of Amazon’s new HQ.
