Chapters ending..

it’s official – performics is now part of publicis, more like part of VivaKi.  i will say, when we first bought performics (project “sherlock”), i wasn’t really sure what it all meant.. at first, i understood we’d learn about search from them.. and then realized how adjacent affiliate was, then realized they were a full-serve serve firm, like an agency.  overall, people like nick beil, eric sanders, cam balzer, and the many other great people who work there taught me and many others here about the search and affiliate business, it’s been a great learning experience and it’s sad to see them go, as much as it makes sense and all.  i hope they all thrive, and as they are now a strategic customer, i’ll have to work to enable that

also, with october will also bring the end of the road for a number of staff here.  in some cases, we know who is leaving, in others, it’s a little more of a closely held piece of info.. but the the familiar faces start to thin out, it’s a reminder of the great team we had here and how those that remain need to carry the torch..
