The Next Web — colloquially named TNW — has been sharing, inventing and advancing tech developments since 2006. TNW started to bring insight, meaning — and every now and again, as they the lulz — to the world of technology. I’ve been reading them for years. Back when I was on the other side of startup land, I pitched them stories. TNW provides deep insights, breaking stories, and the willingness to cover the startup who wants to clear cities of cigarette butts using crows (yes, this bird meets machine learning startup was the first republished story of this partnership). The TNW + Hacker Noon partnership is:
Once per week, TNW will republish a trending Hacker Noon story, and Hacker Noon will republish a trending TNW story.
It’s exciting! The TNW stories we curate and publish can be found at hackernoon.com/tnw.
The first 12 republished stories of this partnership are the 12 tech stories I recommend reading this week.
The First 6 Hacker Noon stories republished on The Next Web:
- Google Glass and Segway failed because they forgot about humans by David Ryan Polgar
- Here’s how to hack 40 websites in 7 minutes by Georgios Konstantopoulos
- AI weapons will transform war — and they can’t be stopped by Daniel Jeffries
- Your bank is probably using phishing tactics on you by Duncan Riach
- Bitcoin needs to prepare for the attack from banks and governments by Daniel Jeffries
- Why I don’t care about net neutrality, or our country’s future by Whitney Meers
“We’re excited to be exchanging some of our stories with Hacker Noon — because the more people read all the cool and interesting stories both our publications post, the better,” said TNW Editor-in-Chief Alejandro Tauber. “I believe media is not a zero-sum game, and that readers deserve to see the best, regardless of the platform — and this partnership is a perfect way to serve even more readers with even more great stories.”
The First 6 The Next Web stories published on Hacker Noon:
- “We’ve centralized all of our data to a guy called Mark Zuckerberg” says Pirate Bay Founder.
- Can Google’s AI Make Better AI Than the Googlers?
- The Finer Things in Tech: Smart Ads While Men Pee in Public
- Could Machines Train Crows To Pick Up Every Cigarette Butt in Your City?

This builds on our recent republishing partnership with Quora. For our readers, it’s another step towards bringing tech’s best perspectives to Hacker Noon. For our contributing writers, it’s another step toward increasing the reach, resonance and influence of their stories. For me, it’s very exciting to work with another site that I used to be just another reader of.
Until next time, don’t take the realities of the world for granted.
