http://www.timeinc.com/pressroom/10nycstartups.php#&panel1-1

Wow, I only know 3 of these? Why is Qwiki still around. They must have pivoted, because their last offering was an insult to anyone with tech chops.

"[...]Time Inc. today unveiled its third annual list of the 10 NYC Startups to Watch for 2013. The ten ventures will be recognized at Time Inc.’s Internet Week cocktail event on Wednesday, May 22nd.

Each Spring, editors from Time Inc. brands, including TIME, FORTUNE, CNNMoney.com, PEOPLE, Sports Illustrated, Entertainment Weekly, and InStyle, comb New York's technology scene to discover the ten most promising startups of the past year.

This piece has been corrected. For the digitally savvy, startups founded in New York's "Silicon Alley" such as Tumblr, Foursquare and Etsy have become household names. But ever heard of MongoDB? The open-source, document database company, backed by high-profile investors like Altimeter Capital and Salesforce.com, among others, is worth some $1.2 billion after its latest financing round,...

A senior technologist needs to tie their programming skills to strategic skills as well...  I still do a lot of programming, but I lead with strategic consulting on marketing and technical efforts.   Writing and Branded Processes make you seem much more valuable.
