Once again NYNMA held its Venture Downtown uptown (well, actually in Midtown) at the New York Hilton. Despite the disparity, desperate and not-so-desperate digital do-ers endeavored there in droves. They were breakfasted by PricewaterhouseCoopers, where the gallant Thomas Hyland, partner and chair with the New Media group at PricewaterhouseCoopers, was meeting with early networkers. Among the eager presenters hoping to be one of the lucky few to get beaucoup funding, were The Feed Room, Sessions.edu and Vindigo. Alice O'Rourke and the entire NYNMA staff once again deserve rounds of applause and hearty thanks for producing such a significant event for the attendees, the presenters, the sponsors and the industry as a whole.
