If you need my help Sunday January 1sy is a Great time to explore what ioffer as an Option without the commitment... there will be others who understand and know tech to help at these Jellies so I recommend attending! A jelly is a sort of casual cowrking with a Coffee house vibe..

I have been focused on bringing more wome, blacks and the " ethnic minority" into technology since 2005/6! I love video...
In 2012 Online Video will explode and so will opportunity in the space! but it means training, development and exploration! So I'm glad to see other efforts emerging!
At #NewMeCommunityNYC on Dec 15th it was a pleasure standing nect to so many Entrepreneurs dedicated To Startup in Tech Space.. I am not much into the Social Media scene... so many in attendence were new to me... I knew two-three individuals as part of the Barcamp Scene and a couple from Podcamp and the emerging online video space! Few attend hack... until recently I did not!
There was one hard core back end developer in the room (that I recognized) but unfortunately Dawn (Yes a Black female techie) who teaches at York College kept silent!
As I listened I was just glad they were there, seven years... is a long time to wait to see this growth! The fact is though they have beenin existence... it's connecting to each other that is difficult!
But I cannot help thinking...
WHAT YOU DO NOT Know will impede your progress!
Startup is not just about Venture Capital funding!
I'm interested in all forms of online video but particularly Telepresence and its use by creatives! In the last few weeks so many people have been calling for info... and they are always surprised at what they DO NOT KNOW!
We had been planning Black jelly for a while...
I love the Outpost and most days can be found there by those needing tech help! The lighting and teh volume also needs to be a bit different! Most blacks i meet love teh space but want a differnt menu and Music.. LOL!
