I read and look at the internet sometimes. I also read and look at Vice. I actually read Vice before there was an internet so I am happy they know each other. Vice is having an Internet Week this week in NY. Vice’s founder Shane Smith is going to give a Keynote address. DJ Q-tip and Tim Sweeney will deejay an afterparty. that Action Bronson is performing at. There will be panels on lots of net stuff from the 5 verticals of Vice. If you are like me and only on the internet and not in NY; you can stream it here. If you are in New York; then experience internet week in person. Itinerary after the jump:
