Google CEO Sundar Pichai has revealed that he begins his day reading technology-related news. For this, Pichai visits a specific website: ‘Techmeme.’
The Indian-origin leader of the Mountain View, California-based tech giant, mentioned this in an interview to Wired.
What is Techmeme?
The website is a technology news aggregator that provides a summary of the day’s essential reports and analysis on a single page. It was started by ex-Intel engineer Gabe Rivera in September 2005; Rivera is also its CEO.
Besides Pichai, Techmeme also counts the likes of Satya Nadella and Mark Zuckerberg, CEOs of Microsoft and Meta, respectively, as its readers.
In an earlier interview with Business Insider, Rivera explained why the platform is so ‘appealing.’
“Techmeme is the first read for executives in tech everywhere because we are dead set on providing the ‘executive summary’ experience they demand. For instance, importance-ranked, highly detailed headlines, alongside a density of links providing context and a sense of reach. No trivialities or clickbait. And of course, no popups, videos, or intrusive ads,” he said.
Sundar Pichai’s morning routine
In 2016, Google’s Indian-born leader revealed several aspects of his morning routine. Back then, he said that he wakes up around 6:30 or 7 am, and reads The Wall Street Journal and online version of New York Times.
He also noted now he is very particular about getting his protein and has an omelette along with a toast in the morning.
