Philadelphia Business Journal’s Peter Key nailed it on the head last Thursday when he compared Philadelphia and New York’s tech scenes.
“[Philadelphia] is really a tight-knit group of people [who] are having regular meet-ups,” an outside observer told the veteran tech reporter.
True again this week, as we see the regulars, like PhillyCHI and Philadelphia Linux Users Group, doing their monthly thing. Refresh Philly is still at it, as is First Round Capital, which you’ll see in our highlights after the jump.
As you may have noticed, we here at Technically Philly are trying to get involved too, doing what we can to work with local organizations to help spotlight the future of media. That’s why we’ve partnered with Temple University and others this week for PhIJI, the Philadelphia Initiative for Journalistic Innovation. Excuse us for the shameless self-promotion for an event that’s not free (but is affordable). Truly, we want you to be involved. There’s no better time to help shape the future of media in Philly and beyond, and we can think of no one better to help than our technology community.
Monday, November 2nd: Refresh Philly hosts a panel about local politics on the Web with Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce head Robert Wonderling, whom we interviewed this summer, and PA2010.com‘s social media guru Benjamin Barnett. Moderated by Technically Philly’s own Christopher Wink, the event will spotlight the value of Web technologies in a city very much versed in local machine politics. A crucial question could be askedï¿½did the Gotham font win Obama the election? 5:00 p.m. Center City. RSVP. [view more events]
Tuesday, November 3rd: This private event has been removed.
Saturday, November 7th: On Saturday, join Temple University for its Philadelphia Initiative for Journalistic Innovation conference (PHIJI), an event meant to highlight entrepreneurial ideas in journalism. As a partner of the event, Technically Philly will present about using free tools to get your media project off the ground, something we’ve subscribed to wholeheartedly here at our virtual headquarters. Trust us though, we’re much more excited to see presentations from more than a dozen inspiring local entrepreneurial media efforts, and you should be, too. All Day, Students: free; Non-students: $20.
