Where Technology Meets the World

ReadWrite is a tech-media publication focused on emerging technologies, such as AI, IoT, smart energy, and smart devices.

Our team loves technology, and our audience does, too.

ReadWrite makes new technologies known while also working to inspire new entrepreneurs to create new transformative technology. While RW is not a “business publication,” our team harnesses the same entrepreneurial spirit surrounding all innovation and businesses.

Whether you are here to read about “the new thing” or to create “the new thing,” our team extends you a big: “Welcome to ReadWrite!”

What does “ReadWrite” mean?

We get asked this question a lot! Here is a quick explanation of what our site is named after:

Read/Write is a storage device you can read from and write to with data. Whether you are coding up a storm or writing the next Shakespeare on your website, an R/W device will be helping you store your communications along the way. In its simplest form, these devices allow us to communicate with technology!

While Read/Write technology is not new, it still touches almost all areas of information technology in some way.
