👋 I'm the VP of Editorial Strategy here at Hacker Noon. I also make podcasts and write stories.
People always seem so surprised when they find out that anybody can create a free account and submit a tech story for consideration to be published on HackerNoon.
Maybe that's because of the great quality of (most of) the content we get to publish?
Or maybe it's because HackerNoon's contributors' stories get cited in articles by Nasdaq, Forbes The Internet Archive Newsletter, or because of how frequently HackerNoon stories get featured on LinkedIn News, et al...
Alright, that's the end of my not-so-humble brag on behalf of our incredible community of over 12,000 contributors.
