What a massive week for Facebook news, eh? What you, dear reader, loved most about our coverage was when Marshall Kirkpatrick stood up and called out CEO Mark Zuckerberg on his half-truths regarding the new privacy policies. We also continued our exploration of the significant Internet trends of 2010: We looked at how books are now a part of the Internet of Things; how you can create code-free augmented reality in less than five minutes; and how the real-time Web affected the Gulf oil disaster.

The Real-Time Web Summit, New York City

You're invited to join ReadWriteWeb for our third event and our first on the East Coast: the ReadWriteWeb Real-Time Web Summit, on June 11 at the Metropolitan Pavilion in New York City. This is our second Summit on the Real-Time Web, following on from our successful debut event in Mountain View last October. It will follow the same unconference format, which we have gotten a lot of great feedback on.

The Real-Time Web is a set of technologies that impacts almost every service, activity and application on the Web. We were one of the first news outlets to analyze the Real-Time Web and we've since written extensively about it. Come to the summit to understand how it impacts you, your business and your next development.

The ReadWriteWeb team is excited about our first New York event and we look forward to seeing you there! Click here to get a 30% discount on your registration.
