Event Highlights November 15th – 21st, 2010

We hope you’ve recovered from BarCamp, Philadelphia (post coming today) because there are two more all day events slated for this week. And, honestly, we’d take the day off for both if we were you.

We hope you’ve recovered from BarCamp, Philadelphia (post coming today) because there are two more all day events slated for this week. And, honestly, we’d take the day off for both if we were you.

This week: Philly Startup Leaders talk shop, TEDxPhilly is finally here and the Wordcamp crew is ready to keep it going.

Wednesday, November 17th: Some of Philly’s most successful startups will be on hand for the third annual Philly Startup Leaders’ Founders Factory at World Cafe Live. Join Invite Media, XIPWIRE and others as they discuss all things startup. University City. All day. INFO.

Thursday, November 18th: No doubt by now you’ve heard of the TED talks, a series of lectures where “the world’s greatest thinkers and doers” get 18 minutes to talk about whatever they want. For the first time, TED comes to Philadelphia via the liscenced TEDx brand. The event is hosted by Gay History Wiki creator Chris Bartlett, so you know it’s going to be a great time. Center City. All day. INFO.

Wednesday, November 17th: Though we’re biased because we spoke at the event, we thought Wordcamp Philly was pretty awesome. Continue the momentum by joining up with the Philadelphia WordPress Meetup Group hosted by the same folks who brought you Wordcamp. Old City. 7 p.m. INFO.
