Call us old-fashioned, but we’ll be the first to admit that there’s something special about print and radio.
With that in mind, we’re excited to announce that the official Philly Tech Week 2011 Program & Magazine is being delivered to 60 locations around the city today, thanks to the distribution reach of Philadelphia Media Network, a media sponsor of PTW. The kind folks at Red Flag Media (publishers of Grid magazine) helped us design and print the mag.
The publication includes nearly the full Tech Week calendar, which since it was sent to the printers has grown to 60 events organized by 50 organizations.
It also features content we’ve been working on as part of our Transparencity series on open government data, an update on the Videogames Growth Initiative, more from Entrance Exam — our partnership with Independents Hall and Young Involved Philadelphia — and a cover feature about the focus of Philly Tech Week: collaboration. And more.
The magazine should be put on display over the next couple days, but If you can’t find it sitting out in these locations, someone behind the counter should be able to help. And as an alternative, we’re offering the mag here in PDF form for those digital-savvy readers. And if print or PDF aren’t your jawn, grab the iCal version of our calendar instead.
The radio spot for Philly Tech Week that will be running on WHYY
Philly Tech Week Signature Event and Cocktail Reception Details: Rich Negrin will speak about good government and technology
When: Fri., April 29, 6:30-9:30 p.m.
Price: $20 (Open bar and light refreshments; Tickets close morning of the event)
Over the next week, you may also hear Philly Tech Week’s radio spot on WHYY, above, which runs today through next Friday, April 29. WHYY’s Old City location at 6th and Race streets is the official headquarters of Philly Tech Week, hosting our free lunchtime series (and all-week laptop drive with Nonprofit Technology Resources). WHYY is also hosting our Signature Event, a Friday, April 29th evening cocktail reception to celebrate and close the first annual Philly Tech Week.
The city’s Managing Director Rich Negrin will be speaking about government transparency, and we have programming related to collaboration including a video featuring nearly two dozen local technology leaders, and a fun (and hopefully actionable) way of looking at the future of Philly collaboration. Not to mention the fully-catered food and drink offerings, with help from the wonderful event planners at Little Giant. It’ll be a wonderful time. We hope you’ll join us.
After the jump, a map and list of the locations where you can grab the print edition of the Philly Tech Week Program & Magazine.
