    Is there a video of this panel discussion on the web somewhere, I wasn't able to be there in person unfortunately and I missed Mitch Rothschild CEO of http://www.vitals.com speaking who I was primarily interested in hearing at this panel.

    The Cornell/Technion tech campus on Roosevelt Island is something to keep an eye on to see how NJ can benefit from being close to this important new tech center that will have classrooms and companies colocated in the same buildings. http://www.forbes.com/sites/stevenrosenbaum/2013/09/23/nycs-next-mayors-tech-challage/
