DoubleClick “Welcomes you to Silicon Alley”

Is this the best picture out there?

Welcome to Silicon Alley

Welcome to Silicon Alley

Guilty about Gilt

The Gilt team. I knew Kevin was behind it, and after reading about them in a recent BusinessWeek, I checked out the site. Dwight had invited me “over the wall.” I checked out the exec team and sure enough, Melanie Hughes was the head of HR. I dress way too casual to ever work there, and even browsing the site, I felt lost. But, luckily for them, the rest of the free world, loves what they do.

Only 1/100?!?

Silicon Alley has it’s latest Top 100… there’s just one ex-Clicker that I could find, way to go Court. I guess they left off KR due to conflicts, but nobody else? DR?

They pulled the Gol-ie!

Steve Golus, “Gol-ie” has landed at DataXu and a more perfect union is hard to imagine.  Congrats Steve.

A reunion down at the Waterfront

A few months ago, I caught up with Dave Adams (he and I are overdue for another, but that notwithstanding), who is now over at Waterfront Media.  And then last night I got an email that Deb (do I need to call her Deborah?  She, technically, can’t fire me any longer, so maybe I should just keep it) Josephs had also joined Waterfront Media, as SVP HR – congrats to Deb!

Update: OK, my facts were stale, Dave split Waterfront.. back to CBS?  Nope, he went to VEVO.

Speaking of ex-Clicker reunions.. Over at Datran Media, Norm Page, Scott Knoll, and Johanna Shalhoub are all employed..

Lastly, Ari is now a total A-lister.. nice press here for the YouTube monetization success story


I caught wind today that Steve Cohn, formerly of DoubleClick business operations (he worked for Neal & Chris, as memory serves), is now over at Quantcast.. I did about :30 worth of research and noticed that David is on their advisory board. That’s cool..

The Kirbster, the thought-leader

Eric Kirby will be delivering a preso on email marketing. He’s now a thought-leader, which I’d agree with. I was just talking with Eric a few weeks ago, just catching up, glad to see the success he continues to enjoy.
