You can find plenty of opinions about how or whether a news organization should play an involved role in the community it serves. We at Technical.ly have always thought that silly. The reporters and editors, event organizers and product people, marketing and sales staff who make sure stories get shared beyond what word of mouth can do are very much part of an ecosystem.

So when we began covering Baltimore’s nascent tech community, it was natural to us that we’d also want to help convene it. That’s where Baltimore Innovation Week came from, an open calendar of events made up of the people and organizations we find most representative of this region’s future economy. In this, the sixth year, it’s clear how vital it is that others take part in this platform, which was never really ours alone. Sure, we at Technical.ly put together the week’s anchor events and raise the flag, but it’s our job to make sure BIW is an open and accessible opportunity for members of this community to connect — with both established players and people who are only now trying to take part. That’s why we’re partnering with ETC.

So thank you for taking part in the sixth annual Baltimore Innovation Week. It’s another in a year-round calendar of events that define the broad Baltimore and Maryland tech, entrepreneurship and innovation community. You are a reason this community continues to show promise.

Openly and honestly,

Christopher Wink, Technically Media CEO, and the entire Technical.ly team
