About WindyBits

WindyBits is published by Tom Sherman. We are a source of original articles and republished news covering Chicago technology. The goal of the site is twofold:

  1. To provide Chicagoans and those interested in Chicago technology an authoritative, high quality, single point of reference for all things related to Chicago Technology.

    Do a search online for Chicago technology and you’ll see a well-intentioned, but poorly maintained, initiative courtesy of Richard M. Daley and the city. You may also see some info from the Tribune, Crain’s, and sites that cover narrow aspects of Chicago technology.

    Our goal at WindyBits is to serve tech savvy Chicagoans with better writing, more comprehensive and thought-provoking coverage, and a minimum of business card grabbing.

  2. Increase exposure to the exciting technology developments going on in and around Chicago.

    Silicon Valley doesn’t need more technology coverage. Chicago, on the other hand, certainly does. Whether it’s feature articles on Chicago-based technology companies and projects, profiles of serial Chicago technology entrepreneurs, or a Chicago spin on larger technology developments, we weren’t satisfied with the coverage. WindyBits is here to fill the gap.

Our success or failure will be based on how well we speak and listen to you, our audience. Contact us via comments on our articles, email us from our contact page, refer us to an existing article, or a recommend a topic you’d like to see covered. We want to hear from you.

Thanks for reading. Go Bears.
