A Couple Of Good Events Next Week
It has gotten to the point that there is an event (or multiple events) every day in NYC for the tech startup crowd. This week is particularly crazy with Internet Week. But I want to highlight a couple good ones next week:
The Internet Society is holding a one day conference next Tuesday called What Kind Of Internet Do You Want? Featured speakers include Tim Berners-Lee and Vint Cerf. The conference costs $25 for Internet Society members and here's a little secret – membership in the Internet Society is free. So if you are interested in the technical, social, and regulatory architecture of the Internet, this should be a very interesting event.
The Silicon Alley Talent Fair is happening next Thursday at the Armory on 69th Street. This is the self organized response to the "official" talent fair that a host of companies could not get into. The organizers of this event have done a great job and there will be a lot of interesting activities at this event. Here's a link for employers who want to attend. And here's a link for talent that wants to attend. If you are looking to land a job in the startup sector in NYC, you should really attend this event.
