The eight of us sat around a table and pretty much had the restaurant to ourselves. After introductions, a conversation that began between me and the Palestinian named Mohammed quickly became the focus. The others may have been concerned where this discussion would lead.

Connecting more minorities to the nation's emerging tech-based economy (via these high-tech industries) is of vital importance for our collective economic future. This bridge-building isn't always easy, however.
