Red Burns, founder of the Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP) in the Tisch School of the Arts, and Evan Korth, a clinical associate professor in the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, have been named to the “Silicon Alley 100: New York’s Coolest Tech People in 2010.” The list, determined by Business Insider, also includes New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Daily Beast Editor-in-Chief and Founder Tina Brown, and Arianna Huffington, co-founder and editor-in-chief of the Huffington Post.

“The Interactive Telecommunications Program is a major supporter of innovation in the city and has produced a number of big successes in NYC tech, including Foursquare's Dennis Crowley and Alex Rainert,” wrote Business Insider, a web publication that focuses on business and technology, of its selection of Burns, who is also ITP’s chief collaborations officer.

Korth was named along with Columbia University’s Chris Wiggins, an associate professor in the Department of Physics and Applied Mathematics, and Hilary Mason, the lead scientist at bit.ly, a site that allows users to shorten, share, and track links. The trio co-founded HackNY.org, a non-profit that connects New York City students with local startups through a summer internship program and aims to build a community among the next generation of hackers in New York City. Business Insider noted their work “to foster engineering talent in the city.”
