The Tech, first published on November 16, 1881, is the oldest and largest campus newspaper at the Massachusetts Institute of Technologymarker in Cambridge, Massachusettsmarker. Editions are published on Tuesday and Friday throughout the academic year, daily during freshman orientation period, once a week during January, and occasionally over the summer. Printed copies are distributed throughout the MIT campus on the morning of publication.

The Tech became the first newspaper published on the World Wide Web, as stated on its webpage: "The world's first newspaper on the Web, est. 1993." Earlier, StarText, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram's videotex system which displayed newspaper content on computer screens, began in 1982 in Fort Worth, Texasmarker (but did not go on the Internet until 1996). In 1987, the Middlesex News (Framingham, Massachusettsmarker) launched Fred the Computer, a single-line BBS system used to preview the next day's edition and later to organize the newspaper's past film reviews.

Nearly every published Tech is available online and most issues are accessible as PDF files. For example, the first issue ever printed: The Tech (November 16, 1881). Edited by Arthur W. Walker, it was printed by Alfred Mudge & Son, Printers, located at 34 School Street in Boston. Today, The Tech is printed by Mass Web Printing Company, a unit of Phoenix Media/Communications Group, the publisher of the Boston Phoenix. From 2000-2009, The Tech was printed by Charles River Publishing in Charlestown and briefly by Saltus Press in Worcester, after Saltus acquired CRP.

"The Tech's" archives are available online.
