LTNY 2008: Cuomo Speaks at Fios Party

Mario_cuomo_0006_2Former N.Y. governor Mario Cuomo was the speaker at a jam-packed reception Monday night at New York City's Rainbow Room, sponsored by Fios Inc.  His address primarily focused on the current politics of the presidential election, but he did raise several points that were very relevant to our legal tech community, no matter what side of the aisle you prefer.

Crowd_cuomo_0016 Cuomo says there must be a partnership between the private and public sectors if we are going to remain competitive in the international arena -- esp. re: technology. He used an example of how the government and NY universities worked together to develop advancements in mammography. Creativity and flexibility to create partnerships, especially in educational ventures, is crucial, he argued.

Earlier in the day, Fios also sponsored a Technology Council Summit.
