I’m leaving behind the humble hills of Boulder this Wednesday, and heading to the BIG Apple for Internet Week!

While I’ll be enjoying many of the festivities involved in this enormous gathering of technophiles, I’m most excited about SendGrid’s third API Hackday, which we are hosting on Thursday, along with Aviary and SimpleGeo.

We’ve sponsored and organized two API Hackdays over the last several months, having covered SF and Chicago so far.
