NYCwireless @ Mashable Summer of Good Conference (#socialgood)

We were very excited when the team at Mashable asked NYCwireless and to bring free Wi-Fi to their Summer of Social Good Conference at the 92st Y. The event is going on today, and you can read more about it (and watch a Livestream of the speakers) at

Today Mashable is hosting our first ever Social Good Conference, a one-day educational event celebrating the finale of the Summer of Social Good charitable campaign. The event is being held at the prestigious 92nd Street Y in New York City, but you don’t have to be in New York to watch or participate! Below we’ve embedded a live stream of the event so you can view presentations from well known and respected organizations and professionals as well as take part in discussions via chat.

We’ve got some serious bandwidth at the conference (2x ADSL 2+ internet connections) and some serious gear here (Cisco 1130 Lightweight Access Points, Soekris routers, and some new APs from Ubiquiti). If you are at the conference, let us know how the network is working for you. If you’re not, be sure to check out the Livestream.

Come join us for Breakout Festival's BETA Session: What's The Craziest Place You'd Work?


Do you do your best thinking on a bike racing through traffic? Do you get inspired in the shower? Is blaring techno music the only way you can clear writer’s block?


If so, then join us at the second of a series of Breakout! Beta Sessions taking place in Manhattan in August and September. We bring the Wi-Fi and some gimmicks to get your creative and collaborative juices flowing. This Friday, we’re going to brainstorm locations for outdoor  coworking during the festival in September, and record them on the Breakout! Wiki. We want to get off the beaten path, and find the craziest, most stimulating, electric environments for creative work in New York City.

When: Friday, August 14th, 2009, 3 pm – 6 pm

Where: Bryant Park (Look for the Breakout! signs and balloons in the southwest corner along 40th St. – see map)

7 to 5th Ave, B, D, F, V to 42nd St – Bryant Park

RSVP: Via  Meetup or email

Breakout! BETA Sessions happen every Friday through September 4, in preparation for the Breakout! Escape From the Office Festival September 17–October 16.
