NY Tech Meetup has been hosting a series of  in-depth conversations with the mayoral candidates. In each conversation the candidate has 10 to 15 minutes to make opening remarks and then answers questions from a small audience comprised of members of the NYTM board of directors and members of the tech community who have been actively involved in policy and advocacy work.

The videos of the first two groups of interviews, which includes Jack Hidary, John Liu, Christine Quinn, Bill Thompson, Joseph J. Lhota, Bill de Blasio, and Adolfo Carrión, are now posted on the NYTM website here: The interviews were recorded on July 23 and August 20, 2013, at ThoughtWorks.
