8 Ways to Follow Internet Week New York Online

Internet Week New York, the annual festival celebrating New York City’s web industry and community, kicked off yesterday and will continue through June 14. The week-long festival will feature more than 150 events, including panels, demos and conferences happening all over the city. Mashable’s own Media Summit event is going on right now (watch the livestream here).

Want to keep tabs on all the events this week? Check out the following ways to follow the conference online:

1. Livestream

Many of the events happening during the week will be broadcast live on the web on the conference website which means even if you aren’t in NYC you can still follow what’s going on in the city this week. You can also grab the official widget and embed live and previously recorded events on your own site or blog.

2. Twitter

You can find out the latest news from Internet Week by following the official hashtag: #iwny. Twitter users are already buzzing about the various events and discussing the hot spots around the city. You can also follow the official Internet Week Twitter feed at @internetweek.

3. PepsiCo Zeitgeist

If you like something a little more visual, you can track the latest tweets, Flickr photos, and Foursquare checkins in one place using PepsiCo Zeitgeist. The cool interactive visualization is a great way to see what’s popular at the festival and what people are talking about. It also includes a Google Map that displays the latest Foursquare activity and an animated bubble chart that displays the most popular keywords used by festival goers on Twitter.

Disclosure: Pepsi has been a sponsor of Mashable.

4. Flickr

Internet Week attendees are snapping photos all over New York City and many of those photos can be found on Flickr. You can find the latest photos from the festival by searching for photos tagged Internet Week 2010 or IWNY or by following the specific Flickr users such as Laughing Squid and Kelly Samardak who are already uploading photos from events in NYC to the site.

5. Official Calendar

Share Video and Photos in Real Time With Pegshot

This post is part of Mashable’s Spark of Genius series, which highlights a unique feature of startups. If you would like to have your startup considered for inclusion, please see the details here. The series is made possible by Microsoft BizSpark.

Name: Pegshot

Quick Pitch: Pegshot is a mobile photo/video service that enables you to quickly share “what’s happening where you are” with friends and family.

Genius Idea: Think of Pegshot as Flickr meets Foursquare, with Twitter and Facebook support also included. It’s a web service and an iPhone and Android app that lets you share your photos and videos — tagged by location — with friends and family. When you upload content to Pegshot, you can identify the location (which then adds a really cool map peg next to your upload). Plus, you can cross-publish your stream to Twitter and Facebook.

What I like about Pegshot is that it keeps the chronology of when you take photos or videos intact. Often times, I’ll take a lot of photos that I’ll want to share, but unless I upload them in the order that they were taken, they show up in my various photo streams completely out of sync. It’s really annoying when I’m trying to show less tech-savvy family members my photos and they’re all out of order.

We like that Pegshot supports two of the biggest mobile platforms (iPhone and Android) and that it can also integrate directly with your other social networking accounts like Twitter and Facebook. If you’re looking for a way to simply share your photos and videos with family and friends — while also being able to plug into your existing social networks — give Pegshot a try.
