It’s Internet Week in NY –a conference/festival of industry panels and classes. It’s been pretty good so far. I took a class on how to pimp my Match.com dating profile and sat through a bunch of panels relating to the music industry in the digital age.
In the cafe, there was AsiaDog, Lonestar Empire, Panade Puffs & Pastries and Robicelli’s. I got the Smoked Brisket and Texas-style Potato Salad. A little pricey at $10, but pretty good meat there. I only got one slightly fatty piece that I really liked. How do I ask for just the fatty slices?
After I finished lunch, I walked into Mayor Bloomberg answering questions next door. Then I surprisingly saw my friend Chris Weingarten on one of the music panels. I also ran into a girl I went on a OkCupid date with. I know. Surprisingly, someone went on a date with me when my dating profile was so shitty. My profile pic is me hanging out with Scooby Doo and Shaggy at Universal Studios. I’m fortunate that my work let me take the time to come. I’m getting a lot of value out of it.
A couple more days left at Internet Week. You can also watch it streaming live or past events for free on LiveStream. You might see my big head in the way of the camera.
