The skimm

Called an “email cheat sheet” by The NY Post and a “Secret Weapon” by one of its two founders,  The Skimm is everything you need to know for the day in one bite-sized chunk. Danielle Weisberg and Carly Zakin, two gorgeous 20-something New Yorkers (by way of Chicago), started The Skimm after leaving their jobs at NBC where they both worked in news production. They now have a free, subscription-based, newsletter aimed at young (errr….), educated, females delivering the top five or so news stories  of the day with neutral-ish and a funny editorial slant landing in your in-box at 6am EST.

Suri’s Burn Book this is not. It’s hard news. With a feminine edge. They don’t claim to do it all….just enough to get you through happy hour or dinner with your in-laws. Sign up. It’ll make you look smarter.
