Thank you →

Thank you to everybody who made Saturday’s event a big success. 

Our volunteers for donating their time and energy, our friends at Fangohr for their ideas, energy and leadership on the design, site and sales materials, our speakers for being not only interesting but exceptional people, and the near-capacity crowd for their attention, enthusiasm and willingness to stand up and talk like tomatoes.  And just everybody for being interested in something called interesting.

We’ll put up our photos and video of the day soon.  And we invite everybody to post their photos on the site: http://interestingnewyork.com/post
