TechCrunch Disrupt NYC is almost here!  Disrupt is a unique event as it is the only conference that gathers the A-List entrepreneurial crowd along with hungry web innovators to generate potent content and conversation. This year, Arianna Huffington, Tim Armstrong, Dennis Crowley and a ton more will be sharing their knowledge with the crowds at Pier 94.

Kicking off the conference on Saturday, May 21st, is the popular Hackathon. It’s free to participants and offers a killer opportunity for developers to create and present a product to the Disrupt masses. …Not to mention the presenting teams will get free access to the conference itself.
