You know what today isn't? It's not a day to celebrate Christopher Columbus for anything. Having a parade today is a joke, and a bad one.
He never set foot on American soil and didn't discover anywhere that didn't already have people living there or prior visitors, not to mention what he did to the natives he found when he showed up in the West.
Columbus is the creepy uncle you stopped inviting to holidays after everyone found out some bad stuff no one in the family will even discuss again. Defending him is like saying "Thanksgiving isn't the same without him!" when you know full well what happened.
So it's either willful ignorance or blatent racism--that special kind of NYC outer borough racism that you get from NIMBY white people who forget where their families came from--that is being shown by GOP Mayoral Candidate Nicole Malliotakis when she says she stands with Italian-Americans and wants to focus on the "real problems" of NYC.
Apparently, Ms. Malliotakis doesn't see racism and human rights abuse as real problems.
Oh, and I'm Italian, and no, we're not on the same side.
I cannot wait for her to get absolutely embarrassed in the Mayoral election and for her political career to come to a screeching halt.
In the same vein, I believe tech companies have a responsibility to build inclusive work environments so they can inspire the next generation of women in tech. That’s why I'm partnering with CommonBond, a FinTech company and online student lender, to support Women in Tech Week.
Starting today, 10/9, you can help raise money for Girls Who Code by posting your answer to the question “Why do you support women in tech?” or “Why are you proud to be a woman in tech?” on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter.
Use the hashtag #2017WITW and tag two friends. For every post tagged, CommonBond will donate to Girls Who Code.
If you have any questions or want to learn how to become more involved feel free to email email@example.com

On Wednesday, I'm running a lunch session of an angel/VC education series where we're discussing generalist vs vertical specific investing. If you're an accredited angel investor, or a non-partner at a VC fund, and you're free around lunchtime on Thursday, please let me know and I'll get you an invite. Also, if you're aspiring to work in VC and you're from an underrepresented background, you're welcome to join as well. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
Do you have space for 75 or more people to co-host a tech event with me after work? Willing to share it for free (perhaps in exchange for supporting something that you're up to in this newsletter)? Let me know.
Just a final note. Last week, I had set my newsletter to go off at 7:45AM Monday as normal, and I did so before we found out about the Las Vegas shooting. It's getting so disheartening that you walk away from the news for a few hours and you completely miss the tradegy of the week, and then you have to watch the complete lack of empathy and competance from our government.
How much money and attention did Pence waste yesterday on political theater when he should have been focused on working with smart people on how to prevent the next mass shooting...
...and now, back to the hope and inspiration of the startup communtiy to create a better tomorrow...

“Your brand is what people say about you after you leave the room” — Jeff Bezos, Amazon And here's another one, of lesser-known origin "there's nothing new under the sun." That surely makes any entrepreneur, innovator or inventor grimace. But the reality is that anyone launching a business must be able to tell their customers why their product is different from their competitor's product. Branding is how startups convey this difference, whether through design, messaging, the product itself or their marketing channels themselves. For some founders, the intangibility of branding is a hotbed of frustration and, for others, opportunity. We're excited to speak with the entrepreneurs who have launched three of the most exciting brands in NYC. Rachel Blumenthal is the CEO & Founder of Rockets of Awesome, a subscription kids’ clothing startup. Oisin Hanrahan is the CEO & Founder of Handy, a platform for on-demand household services. Tory Hoen is the Creative Director of Brand for MM.LaFleur, a popular fashion startup that designs workwear for women. They'll share their insights, experience, and insights with us over some cocktails. Here are some of the topics we'll cover: Which comes first? The product or the brand? How to build a strong brand with limited resources. Their own experiences defining the brand in the early days. Advice on branding exercises for newbies to branding. How changes in business trajectory have shaped the brand and vice versa. The role of design and when it's time to bring in a professional. Who "owns" the brand as the business grows.

As artificial intelligence evolves, we can use AI to work alongside people and extend our human abilities. Wei Wei and his colleagues will join us to present their research and principles that form the Intelligent Cognitive Experience (ICX) Design System. Wei Wei, Han-shen Chen, and Chia-wei Liu are the co-instructors of the Interface Cognitive A.I. course at Parsons as well as the co-creators of the ICX design system.

#BetaNYC, NYC's open data, open gov, & civic tech community
Carto 201 Moore Street - Brooklyn, NY
Our organization’s programming and advocacy work is based from the values and goals in The People’s Roadmap to a Digital New York City, a comprehensive visioning document co-written by BetaNYC and NYC’s civic technology and open data community. Our 2013 document was the result of six community meetings across all five boroughs and a collaborative online writing process. Four years later, 14 of the 34 proposals have been introduced as legislation in City Council. Seven have become laws and nine have gone on to become public-private partnerships. NOW, we seek to revise the People's Roadmap and update our vision for the next four years. Join us for this in person visioning session, and help write the future of NYC's civic/community technology, open data, and civic design!
