Read First Round Capital's blog/subscribe to their newsletter. Excellent. It's all you need. The Hard Thing About Hard Things by Ben Horowitz is great. Blitzscaling is interesting. I dont agree with all of it. Read Techcrunch, Term Seet, Quartz/CBInsights, Businessweek, Wired, Data Sheet (newsletter from Fortune) and subscribe to thought leadership from all the Valley firms. Osana (osano?) has a really good privacy newsletter too.
