tech industry
There is no “technology industry”

Most of the time, folks are talking about the internet & software industry. I’ve taken to calling it that — and never using the word “tech” unless I’m conversing about nuclear fusion or the like.

Similarly, I try to never call a company a “startup” where something more accurate is available, like brand, company, agency, website, app, label, store, service, partnership, or consultancy. You wouldn’t call a new bakery a “pastry startup.”

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
