ReadWrite (originally ReadWriteWeb or RWW) is a Web technology blog launched in 2003. RW covers Web 2.0 and Web technology in general, and provides industry news, reviews, and analysis. Founded by Richard MacManus,[3] Technorati ranked ReadWriteWeb at number 12 in its list of top 100 blogs worldwide, as of October 9, 2010.[4] RW was ranked #10 in the Techmeme leaderboards as of October 9, 2010.[5] MacManus is based in Lower Hutt, New Zealand,[6] but the officers and writers of RW work from diverse locations, including Portland, Oregon.[7] Around September or October 2008, the New York Times technology section began syndicating RW content online.[8][9] RW also has many international channels such as France, Spain, Brazil, and China.

RW was acquired by SAY Media in 2011.[10]

On October 22, 2012, RWW redesigned their website, rebranded as ReadWrite & hired Daniel Lyons as the new editor-in-chief.[11] Dan Lyons has since left ReadWrite on March 20, 2013.[12] Owen Thomas is the present Editor-In-Chief of ReadWrite.[13]

SAY Media sold ReadWrite to Wearable World in February 2015.[14]

In June 2015, the company announced a crowd funding campaign.[15]
