As we usher in another new month in the incessant march towards Christmas 2014 and another new year, there’s a good chance you’ve got better things to be doing at weekends rather than sitting around keeping up-to-date on the latest and greatest in tech news.
It’s a busy month, too.
“This event was off the charts”
Gary Vaynerchuk was so impressed with TNW Conference 2016 he paused mid-talk to applaud us.
Did you know that November is Peanut Butter Lovers Month in the US? Yep, the whole month. Or that San Francisco Bay was first discovered – by land and not sea – on November 2? Or that the name comes from the Latin for nine, as it was originally the ninth month of the Roman calendar?
November 2 also happens to be the same date on which two US president were born; Warren Harding in 1865 and James Polk in 1795. And in Dutch, it’s sometimes called slachtmaand, which means slaughter month. See, November has always had a lot going on; let us take care of keeping on top of the tech news for you.
