It has become appallingly obvious that our technology has exceeded our humanity – Albert Einstein.
Technology is the process of imagination being put into reality. Every new tech innovation once started with an idea. If there is one thing that is common among Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Elon Musk, or any other tech maniac - is that they all are driven by ideas. One wanted to change the population's lifestyle, one wanted every individual to have access to computers, and the other wanted to make Mars a place to live. All of these big names wanted one thing - and that is to change the world. ✨✨
So let us look into the people who have made a lasting impression in the field of technology, who publishes new ideas, innovations and stories to the wider public. We have selected the top tech journalists, whose expertise and love of technology has made them world-famous.
