Techies unite

    We’ve got a Beer Week. Why not a Tech Week? Technically Philly is proposing that Philadelphia declare the week of April 25 to 29 Philly Tech Week.

    With the idea being to unite the city’s tech, startup and venture capital communities, Technically Philly proposes that folks who want to participate and make Philly Tech Week a sustainable, recognized holiday of sorts in the city do the following:

    Hold a meetup during that week
    Host an open house of your office space
    If you’ve got a new product or project, launch it that week

    We’ve got one question for Technically Philly: does this mean nothing cool will come out of Phily’s tech scene until April?

    Do you think initiatives like Philly Tech Week add anything to the city’s culture and community?
