Making Downtown Tech A Reality

Listen
AIR DATE: January 10, 2013

Author and long time tech journalist Sarah Lacey has compared Zappos CEO, Tony Hsieh's vision for downtown to the early days of President Obama's first presidential campaign, a lot of big visions and promise. A couple of years into the effort by Hsieh and his Downtown Project, progress has been made but there are still frustrations at the pace of that progression. Sarah Lacey joins us to discuss what is still needed to make Las Vegas a hub of technology entrepreneurship and a vibrant community.
