Spend an afternoon on N3rd Street this week for our outdoor science and tech demo event, Innovation in the Park. Speaking of N3rd Street, it’s a big week for the crew in Old City with two events, including a communal N3rd Street lunch and the second gathering, where you can join groups who will work on projects to improve the corridor. See ’em here.
Also: Head to Kensington art collective Little Berlin tonight for a free screening of The Internet’s Own Boy, the documentary about late Reddit cofounder Aaron Swartz. RSVP here. The annual Wharton Web Conference is this week, too. Get last minute tickets for the Tuesday event.
