👋 Welcome, I’m David Tvrdon, a journalist and a digital strategist. I specialize in subscription strategy, newsletters, podcasts, and content distribution. I’m based in Bratislava, Slovakia. Currently, I work as a subscription growth and retention specialist at Petit Press. I co-founded 58p.digital, a digital production consultancy. I also write a weekly column for The Fix, a publication covering media and journalism with a European focus.

📩 FWIW by David Tvrdon aims to be your weekly tech, media, and audio digest.

If you subscribe, every Thursday you will get a new edition straight to your inbox. Each e-mail will contain a short essay from me on current development in tech, media, and audio, and the most important stories of the week.


FWIW (For What It's Worth) best describes what this newsletter/publication is about. Here is an explanation from the Cambridge dictionary: used, for example in emails, when you are giving someone information and you do not know if it is useful or not. And I hope it will be useful to you.

FWIW by David Tvrdon is about all things in #tech, #media, #journalism, #podcasting, #audio that interest me with added commentary.

Why subscribe?

You won’t have to worry about missing anything. Every new edition of the newsletter goes directly to your inbox. So let’s stay in touch 🤝

Some history trivia

In Slovakia, I co-host a popular technology podcast (Klik). Each week, I and my co-host look for the biggest tech stories and unpack them for our audience. To do that, we read all the technology news and make notes. As I am interested in media, journalism, and audio (especially podcasting), I follow those topics quite closely. At one point I thought to myself, what if I turn these notes in a blog and maybe start sending it as a newsletter. That’s how this newsletter started and I still look at it as my notes published online. It also serves me as a diary of what happened and countless times saved me from googling for hours.
