Innovators From Legend to Schmidt Partake in New York Ideas

By Kristin Hume
Industry innovators, political game changers, and cultural influencers took the stage at the second annual New York Ideas forum on May 7. 

Hosted in partnership with the Aspen Institute at the New-York Historical Society, the event convened Google executive chairman Eric Schmidt, musician John Legend, and other high-profile innovators to discuss how their work is driving change. In the kick-off interview, Mayor Cory Booker, who, according to TechCrunch, has "redefined what it means to hold executive office in the age of social media," unofficially announced his bid for the Senate.
