What's happening in the world of technology and what does it mean to you? Award-winning technology journalist Dylan F. Tweney cuts through the hype with this free newsletter, published independently since 1998.

My goal in the Tweney Report is to explain technology, how it works, and what it all means -- and to do so in an accessible, understandable way, while avoiding the hype and "gee-whiz" factor found in much tech journalism.

I'm a working tech journalist, and much of my writing is published by magazines such as Business 2.0, PC World, CIO Magazine, and others. When one of my articles is published, I'll send Tweney Report subscribers a link to that story, often adding comments and background not found in the published article.

Subscribers to the Tweney Report will also get exclusive essays and commentary not published anywhere else.

The most current issue appears on the home page of, and I also send it out via email to more than 3,000 subscribers. There is no strict publication schedule; I send out a newsletter whenever I have something to report.

I've been publishing the Tweney Report via email since 1998. For a list of back issues, see my archive page.
