Internet Week 2009

We're entering day two of NYC's Internet Week, and I'm stumbling on my start. Last night a friend and I tried to attend Ignite NYC but were turned away by staff as the venue was full. Today I'll be attending NYTech's Startup showcase and hopefully learning about exciting new businesses.

Updated 6/26:

I'd like to share with you some of the startups I met at the Internet Week showcase:

  • DonorsChoose.org, a nonprofit microfunding site for teacher's clasroom asks

  • Bug Labs, a modular programmable computer aimed at the education sector

  • WellcomeMat, a YouTube meets Yelp!

  • Notches, dynamic product reviews built around your community or site

  • Tripology, a site where travel agents vie for your business. You describe the ideal vacation and they'll coordinate/book it for you.
