This is the first time that I attend it. Was a bit disappointed. It was very formal, too general, without any dynamics. The audience was barely involved. I don't think it was debate at all. The invented panelists just delivered their speeches more or less and that's it.
I attended it and hoped to hear from ambassador Ross about his rich inside experience mainly in the Israel-Palestinian negotiations, to hear where the difficulties are.
I think it could be better to limit time reserved for speeches and give more time for questions and answers, to encourage real debate.
Great event for a tremendous cause.
A string of good student performances, look forward to it the next year.
Great presentation on leadership. Too bad more people didn't attend.
Fresh perspective. Inspiring.
It was very interesting to see that the same reasons that motivate me to engage in social media, keeping in touch and remembering/sharing events, have driven society for centuries. I was worried about the negative questions regarding social media from the audience about addiction and losing touch with "real" people. This should be seen as a tool to do exactly the opposite, connect with others.
A great exposition of what he has written about .. good responses to audience questions .. he made it relevant.
Senator Gillibrand gave a thoughtful, engaging, and powerful speech.
