That is absurd. It doesn't deserve any more words than that.

True but not enough. The stats show that there are >10x the number of startups in Manhattan than the other boroughs. We need to change that ratio and make tech present in every neighborhood

Yeah. It rubbed me the wrong way. I've engaged with tons of people on this topic over the last 24 hours, most of whom disagree with me, without getting pissed off. Something about your tone of voice annoyed me.

Comms disaster is the best way to describe what went wrong here. 100%

It's easier to get companies to think about locating a short subway ride from Manhattan (and Penn Station and Grand Central) than a 45min subway ride from there

Google is operating in the wealthiest neighborhoods in all of NYC. If we want to bring good jobs to the outer boroughs, I think we ought to be open to financial incentives. They exist already. Most of the money offered Amazon was from standard economic development programs.

It appeared to me that they were ordered chronologically and are original tapes.

Only to those who throw it in my face repeatedly. I'm normally the friendliest person on Twitter.

I agree. Being a downer, cynic, critic, negative person is not productive. Try being positive, for things. It feels great and is great.

I wanted to pull out the tapes and look at the set lists but the gallerist was horrified when I asked if I could do that.

These Hartford shows in April 86 were the last shows I went to. The end of an era that took me to about thirty over eight years.

What exactly are "low intelligentce people"? We are teaching computer science to every kid in the NYC public schools. I have attended many of those classes over the years. I have not come across very many children who can't master the material. It's very accessible to them.

I can only focus on fixing what is. What was and what happened is not fixable

We need more good high paying jobs and we need to get the very families that is worried about engaged in the tech sector. That is why I'm spending a lot of time getting computer science classes into every public school in NYC. You have to embrace change not fight it.
