I was not aware that they charged $19 a month to have a group. It's scary that people pay that much when you could easily get the same service elsewhere for free.
Does anyone have any cool moderate sign slogan Ideas? I was going to make a couple.

I think the reason that west coast people think there's no tech scene in NY is because in NY we're actually fiscally responsible. In Silicon Valley you can goof off and get a few million from VCs because they are gambling on you being the next Facebook or Google
In NY if you have no profits, you live on the street. In other words, there are plenty of tech jobs in NY. They just actually make you work 9-5, in an office, doing real work, for a real company that actually makes money.
Yeah, it's not like we have most of the hardware and software companies in the personal computing, mobile computing, entertainment, networking, or internet services markets. Oh wait.
Yeah, I guess if you wanted to actually work directly for Apple/Google/Microsoft, etc. then you could do that, but even the thought of working for any of them makes me sick.
You won't find any argument from me there. I worked for a subcompany of Microsoft that was absolutely horrendous, and then at Boeing for a little more than year before I couldn't stand that place anymore. My point is that even if you take out the behemoths, we still have more tech companies here than anywhere else in the country, big and small, especially in entertainment. The vast,vastmajority of American video games are made on this coast, not to mention the headquarters of all three console makers. There are plenty of other options outside the terrible trio.
The idea is that in NYC, and the rest of the East Coast, you don't work for a tech company at all. You do tech for non-tech companies. You know, for a bank or a defense contractor or an insurance company. Where the real money is. Just like you worked for Boeing. Every company has computers, therefore there are plenty of jobs.
This is a good point, and one that I often forget about. The way I see it, that really just amounts to a whole crapload of IT jobs, and doing IT bores me to tears, so I tend to neglect that whole sector. I'd rather do something more creative and original; money is secondary to that.
There are coders everywhere.
