Site URL: recode.net
Content: Re/code is an independent tech news, reviews and analysis site from Walt Mossberg, Kara Swisher and the rest of the team that formerly built the AllThingsD technology news site.
Design: The design is modern and fresh. The content is presented clearly, but the site does not feel like any other news site. It’s intuitive and easy to use, with limited navigation and a healthy number of articles presented right on the homepage.
Review: The Re/code team has credibility because of its years working on AllThingsD under The Wall Street Journal banner.
The site offers thoughtful tech news, but teachers should be careful—the site’s tone is a little looser than that of AllThingsD, so topics are not always appropriate for all grade levels.
Bottom Line: For classes studying technology or students seeking research sources on tech and science, this site, although new, immediately stands out.
