my notes from Interesting New York (a work in progress)

interesting

I spent most of my Saturday hanging out at F.I.T. taking in the talks for Interesting New York. I was really on the fence about going until the last minute – did I really want to give up my whole Saturday after a busy week of work? Well I’m happy that I did b/c the twenty nine + presenters all gave me something to think about. Some were better than others but there weren’t any duds. Each talk was around 15 minutes which felt like not enough time for the really interesting talks, and just enough time for those that were just ok.

To get this post to where I want it’s probably going to take a week or so to post all the links and info. But I figured that this post could be a work in progress – so you might want to bookmark this page to check back every so often.
