New York Tech Meetup Xmas Party
The NY Tech Meetup Christmas event this week featured several new startups that will surely succeed. Urbis.com, founded by Steve Spurgat, allows writers, publishers and critics to hookup in an almost social media like format. Cogmap.com promises to disintermediate list brokers. And, uplayme.com offers music play list swapping. It's almost like 1997 in the reborn Silicon Alley, with VCs and key players showing up regularly at these events. One of the VCs predicted that the "next billion dollar Net company" will come out of NYC this coming year. As NYers say, "from your mouth to God's ear...." Kudos to Scott H., our NY Meetup tech organizer and impresario.
