Yahoo served as Internet Week New York's "presenting sponsor" for the first time in 2010, bringing a Valley legitimacy to what had started off as a relatively small start-up confab three years ago.

Yahoo also developed Internet Week New York's official iPhone app, and had set up giant-size demos for attendees at the Internet Week HQ.

Oddly enough, Yahoo had also set up a digital graffiti wall at Internet Week New York's headquarters. Bystanders could select colors and pick up a "spray can" that, much like a Nintendo Wii controller, used motion sensors to "paint" the screen. If they liked their finished product, they could e-mail it to themselves or to friends.

Yahoo had a related pitch for Internet Week New York: its coverage of the FIFA World Cup soccer tournament that starts later this month in South Africa. A "Kick It" display was surrounded by computer consoles that had Yahoo Sports loaded up for demonstrations.

But Yahoo wasn't the only big tech company to be making a presence at Internet Week. AOL, which is actually headquartered in New York, had set up a big display for presentations.

Hewlett-Packard, another Internet Week New York sponsor, had carved out a big space in the center of the Metropolitan Pavilion venue to show off its printing and imaging products.

HP also used Internet Week as its platform for announcing HP ePrint, a Web-based printing service that "harnesses the cloud" to allow printing to e-mail-enabled printers from just about anywhere.

Beanbags were front and center at the setup for Internet Week sponsor Microsoft. The "lounge" was also equipped with some analog board games.

The award for creative presentation-space setup at the Internet Week headquarters would have to go to Southwest Airlines, which put several rows of airplane seats in its "pod" in lieu of chairs. But is there extra legroom?
