Techin5 Is A Tech News Source For Non-Geeks
Techin5 is a technology blog written for people who aren’t geeky enough to stay up on all the technical terms that journalists like myself tend to throw around. It’s basically a layman’s tech blog. Founder Jubbin Grewal tells me that he wants to make information so easy to understand, and so easily accessible that it will take a reader only five minutes to get what they’re looking for. Hence the name “Tech-in-5.” He also has this just-crazy-enough-to-work idea to cover the relationship between technology and other things like fashion (see this post).
Techin5′s other main focus is community involvement. Admittedly, that’s one area VB is currently lacking in. Grewal runs a very active Twitter account (as opposed to ours, which just shouts links at you).
As far as I’m concerned, Techin5 is just a blog for now, but Grewal has some interesting ideas that may change that very soon. I’ll be keeping my eye on it.
