The third annual “Internet Week” is upon us in New York, so in this week’s episode of Media Beat, we spoke with the man behind it all: Internet Week Chairman and Executive Director of International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences, David-Michel Davies, or “DMD” for short.
The week has grown to include more than 100 events this year, and any company or organization can submit an event and be included. “We created this as an open platform” said Davies, “modeled after the Internet.”
While planning for the first Internet Week three years ago, Davies said “we really had to pursue people,” to participate. However this year, “it’s really turned around, we have hundreds of people calling, trying to get involved in different ways.”
While we’re talking about Internet Week events, RSVP for mediabistro.com’s Internet Week party tomorrow.
