FreshDirect talks about their brand and their site at:
Mark Safire, President, NYC chapter of UPA/Director of User Experience
Research/Sachs Insights - the art of research

The fate of Governors Island was a popular topic for a while.  I remember some
discussions on the possibility of it being a potential technology incubator as
well as thoughts on it hosting a casino.  Either way, the public is able to
enjoy the park again and there is ferry service from lower Manhattan.  Now open
on Saturdays for the Summer.  Bring a picnic and muse on its history and future

Like the Phoenix, Vic rises again as well!
From their website: "Ten years after a local community helped give rise to a
multi-billion-dollar industry, Southern California's premier technology
networking community is re-mobilizing for its next phase of growth. The new VIC
Network will expand to include Northern California, connecting the west's two
major business centers, reconnecting old colleagues and fostering new
relationships that will last a lifetime. In addition to our famous networking
and educational events, the VIC Network will feature a host of online networking
tools for members to create connections with professionals across town and
around the globe."  Next event? One day after mine! Wed. June 22 VIC @ SF
ArtSFest Center 6-9pm
