10 years growing Irish Tech News with founder John Armstrong


An interesting and rare interview with John Armstrong, the founder of Irish Tech News, who explains why Irish Tech News began and how it has grown over the last decade.

We discuss how Irish Tech News began, first as a phone review site and then it’s evolution into a much wider range of stories and innovative technologies that the site now covers.

Over the last decade the website has evolved as it assessed the most relevant trends impacting the world, Ireland and then the world again. John discusses how the site, based on the latest data, pivoted several times to ensure it covered the most relevant stories. As new areas of interest emerged the website also looked to bring on guest contributors who had excellence in these new subjects.

The interview then also covers where Irish Tech News hopes to go next, and how it has remained relevant and popular with it’s readers. It has been a long, interesting and positive journey as the site has grown and captured more and more impressive interviews with global thought leaders and those at the cutting edge of global innovation. Even more recently Irish Tech News has also focussed on green and clean tech, and also renewables too as it aims to shine a light on the latest environmentally positive technologies,
