If you didn't make it out this year for Internet Week, we hate to break it to you, but you totally missed out. Amazing things are happening right now for tech in New York and the energy at HQ transmitted from the panels to the parties. Last night Refinery 29 along with eyewear maker, Warby Parker, hosted their very fashionable official Internet Week party at The Mondrian's Mister H bar. The evening brought together fashion lovers and techies alike. And rightfully so. Fashion technology is moving into the next wave of development. From the explosion of sites like Pinterest, Shop Style, Stylecaster, and of course Refinery 29, we can only expect more exciting innovations from fashion tech media.
For anyone not in the know, this week is a big one for the digital world. New Yorkers are taking part in the annual Internet Week New York City.

Since the internet is an entire world of possibility, the event is a great mix of just about everything. From memes, to fashion, to food, the week is like a convention for just about every interest, focused, of course, on the internet.

Not bad for an under 30-year-old!
Happy Bday Zucks!

Let's face it, despite your non-addictive personality you’re a junkie. A music junkie. We all are; because music is everywhere and we couldn’t live without it. So assuming that our existence (or at least, the better part of it) relies heavily on our musical intake it’s only fair that we pay homage to the mother of all music outlets: the internet. Why? Because the web completely altered the way we consume music. It allowed us to have unlimited access to any type of music, to share songs that we like in a matter of seconds and ultimately to create tunes from the convenience of our own computer.
