Biography: Sometimes referred to as a "serial" tech entrepreneur, Hidary announced in July that he would run for mayor as an independent and avoid the primary election. The Brooklyn native founded Earthweb in 1994 and helped establish the reputation of Silicon Alley as an up-and-coming hub for technology startups. Earthweb restructured after he left as CEO and became Dice Holdings. Hidary has also been engaged in public service, including with the Partnership for New York City and the Citizens Budget Commission.
