Disqus vanished (for me) and your endgadget link suffered cut/past smartphone syndrome. Going to write about smartphones as a commodity this morning.

Given the LARGE change of leadership (pretty drastic view/perspective) I can understand CEOs needing to feel out the new environment. Add to this the need to find answers for the economic slow. After things settle in for a year or three I'd be surprised not to hear that NY is back in the spotlight of big money. We're a free market economy, or at least part of our market has to be free to properly measure innovation with $$.

Darn it Mr. Wheaton, it appears I've chosen the same color scheme for my blog! On topic: As a child I often imagined worlds outside of my own perception, but unless there's any possibility for interaction it's just idle fantasy (not that there's anything wrong with that). I have enough trouble just connecting with people and places in our own big blue. Money can help but ultimately time prevents genuine connection and discovery of all the world has to offer. Thanks for the post, adding you to my ever growing list of feeds.
