Just in case you wanted to remember the old day. NYLXS literally
started on my backside pushing education opportunities everywhere I
could. These original students here are like a who's who of NYLXS
history... most have gone on to do wonderful things independently of
NYLXS. It makes me feel very old.
It was like pulling teeth... and it still is.
It is actually worse today because much of our methodology has been
hijacked by nefarious big brother companies.
