What You Need to Know if You Missed EconSM (and/or Are Going to NYC)

I forgot to mention the most valuable piece of information I picked up at the EconSM Conference.

No it wasn’t how to monetize social media.

It was what to do in NYC.  Seth Goldstein, CEO of Social Media, mentioned on a panel that he had sent one of his employees a long email on what he should do during his upcoming visit to NYC.  Seth knows how to live the good life, so I followed up with him afterwards and he agreed to share his NYC must-see list with VCMike:
