Is the Panther Express the new DoubleClick

I got a LinkedIn update today from a former clicker, Gad.. he now works with a small company called Panther Express.. they have some employees with familiar names like Ryan and Merriman.  They will be a start-up CDN (content delivery network), taking on small fries like Akamai.  I think a few other ex-clickers work there, or in cahoots with them.  I read a piece recently about how Dwight & Kevin and how they are “bootstrapping” the new company.  I hope it goes well and even volunteered to be a beta tester, I love doing that 🙂  They launch in Feb, so the site is dismal, check back..

Knock Knock?!

What could Google be thinking?  Rich media is a messy place and they want to jump in??

YahooClick!?

Yahoo! is full of ex-clickers of late.. John Pavely, Navdeep, Jenny Pollowitz, Eric Kirtcheff  (although he has been there for a long time), Jessie Cozart, Mike Reich, Natalie Schultz and I’ve heard of a few others, but the names are escaping me, oh well.  People seem happy there..

Entry Numero Un

Welcome to the DoubleClick alumni blog!  I’m not sure where I got the idea.. oh yea, I remember now!  I was using LinkedIn and noticed other folks I knew who were members of the PeopleSoft alumni and Oracle alumni associations and realized DoubleClick has quite a deep and impressive alumni roster, so I went out and got this domain to play around with and see if I ever had 10 minutes to do something with.

I got the domain on godaddy.com for like $2.99, but, as you can see, they throw their annoying ad on the page, and they have 15 packages to upgrade to to remove it, but since I don’t really know where this is all headed, I’m reluctant to make an investment.

My name is Ben and I’ve been with DoubleClick for 4.5 years.  I started in NY and moved to the Thornton, CO office in Feb of 2004.  I hope you like this blog and site, if so, let me know – clicker @ doubleclickalumni.org (yea, fix that to help me avoid being spammed 🙂
