In news of extreme things that nerdy people like, New York’s tech elite will be gathering at Madison Square Park today at 2:30 p.m. for an old fashioned snowball fight (#techsnowball) to be followed by a group meal at Shake Shack. We can’t wait to see how many iPhones and spirits are broken at this event. It’s just past 2:30 now so go over and kick some tech butt!
