2020 kicked off in an exciting way at Vox Media, as last week we announced Forte, a first-party data platform that combines first-party data across 125-million monthly unique visitors from our 13 topically diverse editorial networks. The platform offers a sustainable solution to an industry that’s moving away from relying on third-party data and grappling with changes to browser settings and the impact of CCPA regulation.
The Verge’s Executive Editor, Dieter Bohn also launched his newsletter Processor, bringing his expertise and insight gained from over ten years of reviewing the most important tech hardware to your inboxes daily.
