Fair enough — all of our minds are still on SXSW. But that doesn’t mean you can’t mark your calendars for Internet Week, taking over New York City from May 19-25th. Organizers announced the first headlining speakers Wednesday and Buzzfeed’s Jonah Peretti, Netflix’s Neil Hunt, and Omar Epps are on the bill.
This year, there will be over 250 events — ranging from the Webby Awards to workshops on Google Analytics — throughout the city. If you want to cover it, you can sign up for press credentials here. If you aren’t technically press, you can get early bird VIP passes here starting at $325. Just don’t tell the guys in accounting.
Have you gone to Internet Week in the past? Would your far-away newsroom foot the bill for a spring retreat in the Big Apple? Tell us in the comments or @10,000Words.
