I’m Richard MacManus (@ricmac), a tech journalist and web historian. Cybercultural is my newsletter covering the intersection of technology and culture.

Cybercultural bridges the two worlds I’m fascinated by: internet past ☎️ and internet present 📱. This is a place where I can reminisce about Web 2.0 and opine about Web3 in the same breath.

I publish one newsletter per week, every Thursday (US). It’s 100% free.

More about me

I was the founder and CEO of pioneering tech blog ReadWriteWeb (RWW) from 2003-2012. RWW was ranked among the top 10 blogs in the world, according to Technorati. It was syndicated by The New York Times between 2008-2011 and eventually acquired by SAY Media in December 2011.

I now work for The New Stack, leading its developer channel. I also write a weekly column about internet technology trends.
