TechWeek was a bi-weekly technology magazine owned by Metro States Media, a company headquartered in Sunnyvale, California.[1] It had a controlled circulation of about 100,000. Its audience was people in the Silicon Valley who were interested in technology. It regularly featured a comic strip by Rudy Park.[2]


The magazine began in 1998. Tim Graham, the editor-in-chief, said that the magazine created a large following in its reader base but never managed to establish the same connection with our advertisers"[3]

On November 27, 2000, the magazine published its final issue and announced that publication was ceasing.[3] Graham said that several factors, including the migration of advertising to the internet, the failure to invest enough funds in advertising, and "bad timing" caused it to close.[2] The magazine used technologically advanced advertising methods funded with $4 million, but did not make money from them.[2]
