We’ve officially entered into the third year of Philly Tech Week as of Monday, April 22, 2013. For those of you who don’t know, PTW is the brainchild of local technology news network, Technical.ly. Join in on the celebration of technology and innovation in the Philadelphia region by attending any of the incredible events going on all week long. Over 10,000 people attended 80 events last year, and they are expecting an even bigger number this year.

You can look at the full event schedule here.

Below are two events that you should definitely make time for:

1. The Mayors Digital Inclusion Meeting

Philadelphia Navy Yark/SEP Building

100 Innovation Ctr

2:30 pm – 4 pm

Free entry

The Office of Mayor Michael A. Nutter will host a conversation about the importance of diversity in the technology development sector. As the demographics of tech consumers changes, the economy will be dependent on corporate America learning how to develop content and products targeted at the new majority. Therefore, there is a void for technology as it relates to minority creators. The economy needs diverse influencers in age and race in the technology field to provide innovative content similar to the influence on music, sports, movies, and other fields.

2. WXPN and Little Giant Media present The intersection of Music and Technology
