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, Technorati ranked ReadWriteWeb at number 12 in its list of top 100 blogs worldwide, as of October 9, 2010. RW was ranked #10 in the Techmeme leaderboards as of October 9, 2010. MacManus is based in Lower Hutt, New Zealand, but the officers and writers of RW work from diverse locations, including Portland, Oregon. Around September or October 2008, the New York Times technology section began syndicating RW content online. RW also has many international channels such as France, Spain, Brazil, and China.
On October 22, 2012, RWW redesigned their website, rebranded as ReadWrite & hired Daniel Lyons as the new editor-in-chief. Dan Lyons has since left ReadWrite on March 20, 2013. Owen Thomas is the present Editor-In-Chief of ReadWrite.
SAY Media sold ReadWrite to Wearable World in February 2015.
In June 2015, the company announced a crowd funding campaign.
