Dr. Tae Hong Park and Professor Langdon Crawford presented at The Mobile Futures exhibition sponsored by Razorfish and NYC Media Lab. The Lab, which was launched in 2010 by the New York City Economic Development Corporation, New York University, and Columbia University, connects companies with university labs, programs, and talent in New York.
