Is Internet Week the new Fashion Week?

June 11, 2010

Internet Week Projection

With more than 150 event across New York City celebrating digital culture, Internet Week New York is taking the Big Apple by storm this week. Citing this year’s energy and spirit, The Economist hailed it as “larger and more upbeat, more in the spirit of the city’s long-established Fashion Weeks.” Crain’s New York agreed, saying “Move over, fashion; Internet Week is growing.”

Highlights so far have included the Yahoo! Provoke Summit, the Mashable Media Summit, a NY Tech Meetup featuring demos from New York’s top start-ups, The Webutante Ball (NYC’s “Internet Prom”), as well as a wide variety of conferences, panels, education events, parties, and meet-ups

Our favorite quote belongs to CNET’s Caroline McCarthy, who described it like this

“Internet Week has turned into an amalgam of parties, conferences, and power breakfasts nearly as dense as the far more established South by Southwest Interactive Festival in Austin, Texas; a schedule with a swagger worthy of last year’s Jay-Z Gotham paean Empire State of Mind.”
