I'm giving a speech tomorrow about Crowdfunding here in Boston. The city is a bit shaken up still due to the Boston Marathon bombing. I was a moderator at an event one week after Sept. 11, 2001.

Amazingly, after all the police and firemen let us know it was safe, the event went well, becau I'm giving a speech tomorrow about Crowdfunding here in Boston.

It's complicated and I learned this morning that "white hat" as they were calling him (when only the pix of his brother in a black hat and he in white were first circulated) took a gun shot to the throat and literally can't speak...again making the concept of "you have the right to remain silent" difficult to interpret.
