Oh No She Didn't!


“Quixotic in its pursuit of controversy, with the piercing wisdom of the child that doesn’t have the sense not to call out the Emperor, the Nutshell keeps our too often self-aggrandising community aware that it is in the gutter, even as we reach for the stars. Typically unchained from inbox anxiety, I find the unstoppable urge to drop whatever I am doing when the Nutshell hits my inbox to cringe, giggle, and – yes – even learn a little something in each quick read.”
- Alex Hoye, CEO, Latitude

“Friday reading reinvented.”
- Sam Barnett, CEO, Struq

“There are many places you can go to for news about the tech scene. But The Nutshell is the only place where you can be both challenged as well as amused, scandalized as well as educated, caught up-to-date as well as given material to linger over. Unmissable.”
- Alicia Navarro, CEO, Skimlinks

“The only email newsletter I actually read.”
- Joshua March, CEO, Conversocial
