Looking forward to 2021 & looking out for what's next

The TechBurst Asia Newsletter from Charles Reed Anderson
Looking forward to 2021 & looking out for what's next
Welcome to the first edition of my bi-weekly(ish) newsletter.
I spend so much of my time keeping up with the latest tech trends, so why not let me vet the news for you? Here’s what you need to know:
  • NEWS THAT CAUGHT MY EYE: The latest trends, innovations & a bit of humour
  • GIVE ME DATA! Reports/forecasts/surveys to help you evaluate the tech industry - or support your confirmation bias
  • CHART OF THE WEEK: Yeah, I know I said it’s a bi-weekly newsletter, just work with me
  • CRA RANTS: I have lots of strong opinions & I’m not afraid to share them
  • THE LATEST TECHBURST ASIA PODCASTS: My recent guests and topics covered
  • WHO THE HELL IS CRA? What I do & what the industry says about me (hopefully nothing bad, at least to my face)
If you like the newsletter, please share with your friends, colleagues & contacts.
And if you don’t like my newsletter, make sure you only share it with people you hate…
Enough rambling, let’s get to it!
