Quick-hitter job post

I got an email from Gad, the French clicker (ok, not the only one, but the one I worked with the most, way back when).. He had a lead on a pretty cool gig:  Sales Director /VP sales in NY area, for a start-up who is launching a new advertising inventory system in the US.  Gad claims it’s better than ShowAvail 🙂  Ping me or gad (gad a-t stanislas dot org)

Remember when..

As I packed up this AM in my hotel, I looked at my nice DoubleClick duffel bag.  I then remembered where I got it.  Back in like 2002 or 2003, I think Bruce Dalziel had the idea to sell off the excess schwag to the employees, so I bought a few things, including this bag.  I recall paying $20, I think Barb (Thanner) was running the register 🙂

Fueling a new start-up

Richard Frankel, former NG & Clicker, is now heading up a new start-up, a new type of network.  I haven’t spoken to Richard in a few years, but always liked working with him in my early Clicker days.  Head on over and read all about it.

Rey, was it that bad here?

I happened over to Rey’s profile on LinkedIn | Rey LeClerc earlier – it was in a newsletter from them, and I couldn’t help but notice he has a 3 year  gap in his resume, the very 3-odd years he worked at DoubleClick.. What went wrong Rey?  I hope it wasn’t something I said.. 😉
