    VIDEO: Access Code: Demo Day @Coalition4QNS 

    On July 29 2013 the Coalition for Queens presented Access Code: Demo Day at the See Me exhibition space in Long Island City, NYC. Access Code is an 8-week, 50-hour tech education and entrepreneurship development program that provides immigrant entrepreneurs with the skills & mentorship to build and launch high-tech companies. In the first program, over the past eight weeks, twenty-two students worked hard learning the ins-and-outs of iOS development, and then split into four teams each tasked with producing a working app. The program received support from the City, and no less than two Congresspersons, and two Councilmembers, including the Chair of the Economic Development Committee Karen Koslowitz, showed up to say a few words. A keynote – a lengthy homily on perseverance – was delivered by entrepreneur Nihal Mehta. Video is below, the actual demos start 45 mins in.

      Donkey Poodle was a clown, known as Phoney Tony, full of crap from his baloney. Developmentally challenged always major in urban planning and are as boring as Al Gore. Flushing Meadow is soaked full of arsenic, lead, dioxin and asbestos from all the ashes. At least the Vallone brothers have a sence of humor compared to these phoney neurotics. Instead of harassing little old ladies septic tanks in Westchester, why not have all those new engineering schools design a water filtration system and produce green jobs. Free lethal injections for ras-Putin Agents obstructing fracking.

      Feudal casuists like Vallone perpetuate the un-American canard of the mom and pop farm/deli/dega to seclude their sedition and illegal acts. Tocqueville 1848 ii.ii,19 debunks the notion of the hereditary family farm. Milton Friedman J Eco Lit v 30 n 9 p 2129-32 shows success of small business is indeterminate because of survivor bias. McKinsey’s Manyika WP Feb 7 2010 B2 shows large firms produce jobs more quickly. Even the Economist says (The small-business canard, Oct 5th 2010) only a small fraction of smaller enterprises are capable of generating sustained growth of very many jobs.
