The Nutshell is the slightly frivolous but (we hope) entertaining end of a much larger operation, which is still very young. While we’ve been overwhelmed by the kindness and support from readers of The Kernel, we know there’s a long way to go before we earn our stripes. But as we build this family – clichéd, but it really is how we feel – we need to nurture our favourite baby so it has the best chance of health and success. And we want you, our readers from the early days, to help us.
The first thing we would like you to do is drop us a note to tell us how you think we’re doing. Whether it’s praise, criticism or ideas for new directions and new projects, we want to hear from you. We started The Kernel because we thought there was something missing, and we’re working hard to fill the gap in European tech coverage with quality writing, fresh ideas and a sense of humour. Now’s your chance to help us define our mission for the next few years.
The second thing we have to tell you today is that last week’s installment was the last Nutshell you’ll get for free. From now on, it’ll cost you a pound a week. But that’s all it will ever cost, and that pound also gives you free Kernel membership, which will provide you with full access to our paywalled content and members’ area from April, free Kindle delivery of The Kernel’s ebook edition, reduced entry to our events and a host of other benefits, including money off vouchers from our friends at FoundersCard, Naked Wines and much more.
We want to thank and reward you for being a part of this journey from the very beginning. So all you will ever pay to access any of our content, here or on the site, is a pound a week. We hope you will join your fellow readers in supporting us through this journey, and help us to build The Kernel into the world-class publishing and events operation the European tech industry deserves.

“Quixotic in its pursuit of controversy, with the piercing wisdom of the child that doesn’t have the sense not to call out the Emperor, the Nutshell keeps our too often self-aggrandising community aware that it is in the gutter, even as we reach for the stars. Typically unchained from inbox anxiety, I find the unstoppable urge to drop whatever I am doing when the Nutshell hits my inbox to cringe, giggle, and – yes – even learn a little something in each quick read.”
- Alex Hoye, CEO, Latitude
“Friday reading reinvented.”
- Sam Barnett, CEO, Struq
“There are many places you can go to for news about the tech scene. But The Nutshell is the only place where you can be both challenged as well as amused, scandalized as well as educated, caught up-to-date as well as given material to linger over. Unmissable.”
- Alicia Navarro, CEO, Skimlinks
“The only email newsletter I actually read.”
- Joshua March, CEO, Conversocial
