We're thrilled to reveal the first of this year's Webby Sessions taking place at Internet Week New York!
The Webby Sessions are a series of panels and discussions touching on the latest Internet trends and inspirations specially curated by us. Each day, we will bring you thought-provoking content and leaders representing the very best of the web.
The first Webby Session is taking place on Monday, May 20 at 11am and will feature the incredibly popular, engaging, uplifting, and Webby Winning photo blog Humans of New York.
Photographer Brandon Stanton will join Webby Executive Director, David-Michel Davies to discuss the Internet's ability to foster altruism and build supportive community along with sharing the meteoric rise of his blog over the past couple of years.
We look forward to sharing ideas from some of our most inspiring Webby winners, judges, and friends.
