Smashing an iPad at Internet Week (Jim Colgan / The Takeaway)

This week, New York techies are going offline and trying to meet up in real life. Takeaway digital editor Jim Colgan attended the third annual Internet Week festival, where companies like Meet Up and FourSquare were showcasing tools that get people talking to each other. Meetup's new tool, "Meetup Everywhere," helps any organization to get its members get to know each other. It's what Meet Up's founder, Scott Heifernan, says is "using the internet to get off the internet." To make his point, he smashed an iPad on stage. Click through for video.
