  • The first Tuesday of every month, NYU's Skirball Center becomes the city's tech mecca as hundreds crowd in for the NY Tech Meetup.
  • I desperately want "skirball" to be a sport, an ultra-violent, stomach-churning, sport in which people regularly lose limbs but gain respect.
  • If you are presenting at the NY Tech Meetup remember to repeat the question before answering!
  • On 10/11/11, I joined the New York Tech Meetup here to launch the third NYC Big Apps competition, immigration seminars for startups, and a new mayor's council on technology: http://bit.ly/p10k0T
  • We love that this theatre can seat 850 people but still feel pretty intimate. Read more about Skirball Center here: http://bit.ly/wLbxQ2
  • Hosted John Kerry and Al Gore, and the recording of The Apprentice's third season finale. The only performing arts center of its kind south of the Lincoln Center. Construction cost = $40 million.
  • PRO TIP: sit in the last row of the balcony & you WILL get cell phone reception.
  • NYU Students - Go meet the Mashable Team before Ultra Violet Live and get a "Mashable Rocks" sticker
  • TechMeetUp
  • Insert cool things here
  • This is an excellent, modern venue with exciting acts from all over the world. Skirball's stadium style seating and small-moderate size provide fantastic sightlines no matter where you sit.
  • Filled with the most wonderful ushers!
  • See a live Intelligence Squared Debate at the Skirball Center, recorded live for radio and TV! Sip a glass of wine before you cast your vote for a team "for" or "against" the motion.
  • Great event space and the home of the World Science Festival main stage
  • On Apr. 25, TFF celebrates new frontiers in collaboration with Harvard professor Clayton Christensen. Cross-disciplinary Disruptors are honored from a broad range of domains.
  • Contrary to popular belief and questionable marketing methods, there are no skeeball games available here AT ALL.
  • This theater provides excellent sound and sight lines but make sure to meet your friends outside, it's hard to get cell reception once you go through the entrance.
  • Dancing the Gods 10/28
  • Great events here like PDF and Games for Change Festival. If you are interested tech and media conferences check out Movements.org!
  • Bring a jacket if you have an early class here...it's freezing!!
