Why are Technobyte’s interesting facts better than any place on the internet?
Because we sift through the enormous pile of click-baits, fake news, and low-quality BuzzFeed-esque lists to
bring you the most mind-blowing facts from across the universe. From the beginning of Technobyte, we have despised click-baits, hyper-sensationalization, and misleading content. We work hard to make sure that our interesting facts give you all the information pertaining to that particular amazing fact. Moreover, we try to explain the science or the technology behind the fun and unknown facts in an easy to understand and engaging manner. We strongly believe that Science and Technology have the power to enthrall our minds. And with the combination of that ‘woah factor’ and the truth it possesses, people, we believe, will always turn to science. Simply put, our interesting facts are better because we put in the work.
What is it that you do to ensure the quality of your interesting facts?
Our first source of information for our amazing facts on science and technology are usually aggregator sites. We see the irony. But aggregator sites do quite well to give an idea about what readers are interested in. Fun facts usually gather a lot of popularity on these sites. So it is quite easy to gauge public interest. Once we select a topic, that’s when our methodology of three-point verification starts. We first find the primary source of that information. This can usually be a newspaper or a reputed online science or tech related website. Once that checkbox is marked, we check Wikipedia to verify and cross-check all the points mentioned in the primary source.
From the Wikipedia post, we then track the original research/review paper or publication to get the raw, unfiltered information. This is a necessary step. We then truncate the information found therein into simpler terms. That part is the tricky. Because it carries the risk of omitting some information that might be necessary. It is also tricky because this is the spot where a lot of personal bias or opinions can enter the copy. So we make two people do this and then compare their notes to remove any inkling of personal bias or omission. Hence our interesting facts have a high quality.
How do you plan to reach your goal of building the largest list of interesting facts on the web?
Slow and steady wins the race! We cannot compromise the quality of our interesting facts for the quantity. It’s a bit hard to cover the massive breadth of topics. We don’t have a team of writers. It’s just a couple of guys writing and spending countless hours trying to understand research papers. So it takes some time to get the facts right and to break them down into easy to understand bites of data for our readers. If you think you have an interesting fact or
any mind-blowing facts that are from the realm of science and technology, feel free to share it with us. We will verify the veracity of your wonderful fact and dive into the technicalities to explain the science behind it.
