These were just a few of the big questions discussed this morning at TechCrunch Disrupt in Manhattan’s Pier 94, a cavernous former ship terminal (complete with draft and sparrows flying overhead) that functions this week as the event’s home.

On the investment side, Fred Wilson and David Tisch chatted about Facebook’s IPO and New York City innovation.
