The piqd European channel – piqd.de

Piqd has its own channel for Europe only! There you will find posts based on the classic piqd principle: piqd authors have taken the trouble to search the web for exciting content and summarize it in short posts. There is also a separate classification of the article and of course the link.

You will find articles on piqd that do not appear in the first search engine search, but which would be worth appearing there. It is not algorithms that recommend content here, but people, so-called “curators”. “piqd” is a pun on the English “hand-picked”. There is a German and an English edition.

What I particularly like is that an information source has emerged here that guarantees two things: relevance and ease. It’s not about the article most people read. It’s not about lurid headlines to get as many clicks as possible. It’s all about content, and there’s no pressure of time or sales.

Everything is free and the site is free of ads.
