After a blissful six weeks without my Blackberry, I am torn about this article about the NY tech startup scene….
For example, funny that it takes technology to create face-to-face interactions:
"“I think everyone wants to be a regular somewhere,” Kortina says. “It’s more poignant in New York than elsewhere—there’s an innate desire to connect with real people.

If we can help make it easier for people to establish that connection, I think it just makes people feel good.” The technology is being used to enrich urban face-to-face interactions—a better New York, if you, as a New Yorker, can believe that."
