This was a fun project to be involved with (I wrote the intro)! The NYC tech/startup scene has grown like crazy since I moved here two years ago.

Very surreal night ... I was at the New York Stock Exchange for Business Insider's SAI 100 event when the TV screens started flashing news alerts of reports that Jobs had passed.

I immediately darted for the door to head back uptown to Mashable HQ, but we were locked in temporarily because of the Occupy Wall Street protests outside. The entire Business Insider crew -- including Henry Blodgett (BI's founder), who had just spoke to the whole crowd -- was huddled right by the door as well getting to work on their stories (they had the good sense to bring a few laptops and 3G cards to their own event, I gather).

Once I got out of NYSE, the scene was pretty chaotic -- streets were closed off and there were just seas of people blocking the entrance to the subway. But in that sea of people you could hear dozens of them -- including cops -- learning of the Jobs news (many of them, of course, via their iPhones) and sharing it with the people next to them.

In any event, by the time I got back to our office, we had about 10 of our people already on digesting and working through the very difficult news. It was one of those moments where our whole team comes from wherever they're at in the world to share and contribute (most of Mashable is based in NYC, so it was after hours), and a special thing to be a part of.

In any event, I'll certainly remember tonight for a long time. All of our coverage can be found at the link below. RIP Steve.

Hmm Facebook suggests I subscribe to the guy behind Google+ +Vic Gundotra ... Conspiracy theories anyone? :)
