(Some of) What You Should Be Reading, If You Aren’t Already


Smashing Magazine has a new list up entitled “42 Design/Tech Magazines to Read” and it’s a nice resource for those wanting to be “in the know” who aren’t necessarily there at the moment. It’s a great list, even if a couple of sites we think are pretty invaluable are missing (biases aside). There’s even a few that we didn’t know about before scanning it, and that’s always a good sign.

What is right for business, is also right for online business. To catch up with the latest developments in design, development and web-related areas, it’s reasonable to read design/tech-related online-magazines.

Therefore decent references can be extremely useful, particularly if you don’t know where to start from.

This overview of over 40 established international design/tech-related sources is supposed to give you an overview of magazines you should read or at least scan from time to time. Some of the sources are well-known by (almost) everybody; hopefully not all of them.
