Not only were the panels great, the networking was as well. Plus, we came away with some incredible insights and buzz words, like Donna Boyer of Danoo introducing the concept of "micro-boredom" to help explain the acceptance of digital video networks at gas stations, cafes, restaurants and mobile devices (we can't stand being bored for even 10 seconds). Also, Sophie Gayot of's insightful comment that the 'United States was not really known as a food and wine paradise until only 20 years ago,' helping to explain our current newfound obsession with the subject. This followed by the lively "Bottom Line" discussion on making money and raising money - a topic none of us can afford to overlook.
