Why I Think The Jet.com Acquisition is Disappointing for the NJ/NYC Tech Community

In 2012 the NJ Tech Meetup won the New Business of the Year award in Hoboken.

I noticed that the mostly old-school room of business owners seemed dismissive to the reality and impact of what I was suggesting.

However, when it comes to science and technology policy, it does not have to start and end with the federal government. In fact, states such as New Jersey have a unique opportunity to drive innovation policy.
