SAI And Friends At The New York Stock Exchange


SAI is not listed on the New York Stock Exchange yet (!), but last night – with the help of a few hundred friends from the New York tech scene and the NYSE – we took the place over.

Specifically, we held a big bash to honour the Silicon Alley 100: New York tech’s coolest tech people in 2010 and the rest of the booming New York startup scene.

Some pictures follow…
