Support Hyperallergic’s independent arts journalism.
This Friday, 70+ New York startups and tech companies — including us! — are opening their doors so you can see where the magic happens. Organized by Harvest, one of the stars of the city’s startup scene, this event is an official partner of Internet Week New York 2011 and will take place this Friday from noon to 6pm (though check the map for exact hours for each location).
When you stop by Hyperallergic HQ, we’ll be sure to be friendly — though some of the staff will probably be out on assignment that day, we are a media company after all. But we promise to entertain you the best we can.
While we will be the only company representing Williamsburg, there are a ton of other great venues if you prefer to wander around another neighborhood. You can visit startups like Harvest, Gawker, Flavorpill, VYou, ZocDoc or Rocketboom in Soho or Vimeo, Betaworks or BlipTV in Chelsea. We encourage you to explore your local tech and startup scene.
Of course, this wouldn’t be a tech event without a hashtag, so check out #walkaboutnyc all week for updates.
Also, if you come by our office and does two of the following two things:
- checks into Hyperallergic HQ on Foursquare or Facebook
- signs up for our email list
…will get a free Hyperallergic tshirt! Hurry, because quantities are limited.

Renty and his daughter Delia. Renty was an enslaved African, kidnapped from the Congo, sold and forced into slave labor on the South Carolina plantation of B.F. Taylor
What is the relation between possessing a person, possessing their image, and dispossessing their progeny
As a scholar of African American history and photography whose work has focused on the status of violent images in museums and archives, I fully support the validity of Ms. Tamara Lanier’s claim and the amicus brief.
Two K-12 art teachers will each receive a $1,000 cash gift and an additional $500 to put toward classroom art supplies. Nominations are due October 31.
The daguerreotypes of Renty Taylor, Delia, Drana, Alfred, Jack, George Fassena, and Jem remained in an unused storage cabinet until 1975, when it was discovered by an employee of the Peabody Museum.
I am writing in support of the amicus curiae brief submitted by Professor Ariella Aïsha Azoulay of Brown University for the full restitution of the daguerreotypes of Renty Taylor and his daughter Delia, currently held by Harvard University, to their familial descendant, Tamara Lanier.
We cannot be indifferent to the long-lasting effects of photography. The photographs at the center of Lanier v. Harvard are relentless in making Renty and Delia Taylor work and perform as slaves. The pain inflicted on them has not ceased. Photography has the capacity to propagate harm, and we have the moral obligation to interrupt…
