Do you subscribe to any newsletters? If yes, how useful are they?

I've been exploring the world of newsletter, and wondering if there is any good Tech or cyber security newsletter that you personally subscribe to!

    In the modern world of blogging, emailed (and snailed) newsletters have been reduced to pure marketing material to drive readers to blogs and advertisers. Newsletters typically do provide some value, but few are mostly value-content as newsletters once were in the 1970's thru 1990's. (And not to be confused with news magazines, such as Phrack Magazine.)
    My best example of a true, emailed newsletter that I consistently read is Bruce Schneier's Crypto-Gram Newsletter. It's basically a digest of his Schneier on Security blog, which I rarely visit because his newsletter is enough for me.

    Well I started a newsletter two weeks ago  B)

    I can share a lot of stuff in the newsletter that don't make to videos, just short and sweet. Main goal of the letter to help people land their first cyber security role or progress within their cyber security career


    I enjoy writing!

    Daniel Miessler's newsletter always provides value (in my experience), even though I don't share his worldview and I disagree with a good deal of his analysis. But he's a thoughtful writer and provides useful commentary and resources on a weekly basis - AI, cybersecurity, current events, and related matters.

    Here's the summary he provides:

    "Unsupervised Learning is a Security, AI, and Meaning-focused podcast that looks at how best to thrive as humans in a post-AI world. It combines original ideas, analysis, and mental models to bring not just the news, but why it matters and how to respond."

    @UnixGuy, I look forward to reading your newsletter!

    Edit: I should have noted that Unsupervised Learning is both a podcast and a newsletter, and I prefer the newsletter format. :)

    Mostly I don't, They all are promotions. I sub only when the product is interesting or value to the money.

    I know you may not be interested in this, but my newsletter has been going really well. I'm able to provide a lot of value to those who are interested and im getting regular replies from people expressing gratitude

    so to summarise, I found another way to help people improve their career (life) :)

    Do you make an archive of your past newsletters available? It's surprising how many orgs that publish newsletters don't make an archive publicly available.

    @JDMurray the platform that I use keeps a copy of them, and there is an option to convert them to a blogpost via a plugin, which I will do sometime next year when I - eventually - have time

    Absolutely! I highly recommend 'The Hacker News' for tech and cybersecurity updates. It's informative, well-curated, and keeps you in the loop with the latest developments. Give it a try!

    I do on a couple of them, but I rarely make the time to read them...so they usually end up in my spam folder...SMH
