Since its debut in 2014, the New Stack has served up a unique blend of research, reporting, and domain expertise that takes technologists beyond “daily headlines” and offers an impressive level of context for all that’s happening with modern architectures, operations and software development.
Alex Williams is founder and editor in chief of The New Stack. He's a longtime technology journalist who wrote for TechCrunch, SiliconAngle and ReadWriteWeb before starting the New Stack. Speaking of ReadWriteWeb, Richard MacManus, who started the weblog in 2003 and built it into one of the world’s most influential technology news sites before selling it in 2011, has recently joined the New Stack as a Senior Editor.
