About this breakfast: Changing it up a bit this time! Ben Parr is an erstwhile Silicon Valley-based investor who recently moved to NYC with his new venture, given all that's now being revealed about the inner workings of Silicon Valley - the good, the bad, & The Ugly, & since Ben did spend much of his career as a reporter, we thought we'd hear a bit about it from a first-hand source, as both an investor & reporter.
