Selected Tweets From ICGN 2013 in New York

ICGNUnfortunately, I got sick in New York, so missed the entire second day of ICGN 2013. Several weeks later, I am still recovering and am way behind in my other work, so any real comments I have on the conference will be long delayed. In the meantime, here are a few selected tweets.

They aren’t in order. Some may be retweets. Nothing guaranteed here re authenticity or links that work but I found them interesting and hope you will as well. I’ve edited out some duplicates but some may remain.  It was a great program.
