May’s Most Read Tech Articles — by the numbers

Founder & CEO of Hacker Noon

Welcome back to the monthly roundup of best performing stories on Hacker Noon. This month, we’re leveraging Medium’s trending stories algorithm to rank the top performing 23 stories. Additionally, I gave every article a subhead of off the cuff importance, and then listed them alphabetically because there’s a chance I’m a figment of your imagination created by artificial intelligence. Seriously, couldn’t be more impressed with our contributors this month, and how we’ve accounted for 5+ million minutes in May.
