Here are some photos from the expo hall at the Internet Week NYC headquarters.
This week brings the third annual InternetWeek to NYC. There are a wide variety of events across the city. Many are already sold out – you can find a full list on the IWNY site. Check Gary’s Guide for a comprehensive list of events in your city. Here are a few events that still have open seats.
Dave Winer will moderate a panel - Sources Go Direct – about news and journalism on Wednesday afternoon. Panelists include Rachel Sterne from GroundReport, Fred Wilson from Union Square Ventures and Nick Denton from Gawker Media. It’s free and there will be time to mingle after the panel.
Monday evening entrepreneurs will come together to learn how to start a venture and how to find a cofounder. Speakers include Howard Morgan from First Round Capital, Jeff Stewart from Mimeo and Stephen Messer from Linkshare.
Mobile Monday should be hot this month with the Apple WWDC and all the talk about a new iPhone. Another Monday evening event.
Tuesday evening showcases a variety of media personalities at The Future of Media 2010.
Tuesday afternoon Brooklyn-based Drop.io will host a talk at the IWNY headquarters about business models and cloud services.
NYC will host the third annual Internet Week next week. There about 150 events across the city in a wide variety of content types and parties.
If you are a developer, one event worth registering for is the Chrome Extensions Hackathon. The event will be held at the Google offices in NYC on June 10th. If you are interested in building extensions for Chrome, this is the place to be. The last Google Hackathon in NYC was centered around maps and I found it to be extremely useful as you get to speak with Google developers one-on-one for help and advice. Google Developer Programs Engineer Arne Roomann-Kurrik will be flying in from the valley to lead the event.
Register here for the event (it’s free) – make sure to register soon as space is limited.
I’ve received the following notice from a few people – looks like the NY State Senate will be unveiling a new website and some other online initiatives tomorrow. I plan to attend and will grab whatever information I can. Here’s the full announcement:
Imagine a State where you could find out what your government is up to with just one click of the mouse.
What if that State were New York That is the goal of the new New York Senate’s website http://NYSenate.gov.
Though we live in the 21st century, most government bodies remain stuck in the technological dark ages. No longer. Under the leadership and vision of Majority Leader Malcolm Smith, your New York Senate is undertaking a series of reforms that will shift the way New York State government operates. Rules reform was the first step and the goal of
these reforms is to return government to the people of New York.
Last month during NYC"s first Internet Week, Federated Media held their Conversational Marketing Summit. I was scheduled to cover the event but after Dave McClure offered me a speaking opportunity at the same time at Graphing Social Patterns, I had to pass on CMS. Luckily the Federated Media team has posted videos of the entire event and if you are into social media, internet marketing or the "conversation" – the videos are well worth watching. The audio is perfect for an iPod walk or for a train ride.
The videos aren’t embed friendly which is interesting because that’s limiting the conversation. Wouldn’t Federated Media want viewers to spread the videos and thereby share the conversation? John, do the smart thing and make the videos embeddable!
Anyway, there’s 16 hours of free videos from a group of industry experts – get your watch on!
Tonight Mashable held an expo which was really more like a party that had a few companies demo their goods. I liked the setup which had the demos along the outside wall which allowed for a pinch more movement throughout the club. It was great to meet even more CN readers, thanks ya’all! CafeMom wins the award for the best giveaway of 2008 – I won’t tell you what it is now, you will need to wait until I use it in an upcoming video. I will give you one hint… it has a magnet. Here are some photos with my captions (view all photos):
