Steve Baldwin is an angry old nobody, who has anti social tendencies. The only way he can make is to badmouth those of us who worked hard to make the industry work.

Aliza because of your dedication to the industry there are more women online. You not only made successes in NYC and did well for yourself, but also made a life outside of the industry and the city. That's huge! I admire that!

What's Steve good contribution to the Industry? nothing...just a cranky blog and bum book.


oh Tery, you crack me up! thank you for your support and friendship. I think you and I are the only ones reading my mediagirl blog anyway. but I keep blogging away...

Better to have loved and lost then never to have loved at all.

Ah, the 'good old days' of the mid-late 90s in New York.

I remember going to WebGrrls networking meetings at 3 or 4 different locations, mostly in Soho, but each time the meetings were bigger. Anyone remember the initial format of meetings, where each person could introduce themselves and say what thay had to offer and what they were looking for? After a while that wasn't posible anymore, and in came the guest speakers and the frantic flurries of business card exchanging.

It seemed like a huge happening when 55 Broad Street opened and there was a whole building devoted to cyber-stuff. Everyone ignored the irony that it was the old Drexel building; these days it seems somehow fitting.

So much of that time turned out to be just smoke and mirrors, but it was a hell of a lot of fun to live through.


Is that Glen Lipka from Kokopelli with Katie? Long time! Glen and I used to write a column for Oracle magazine together. He was the techie brains behind those articles. I added the "female touch," whatever that meant.


And Rachel - how cool to hear from a former WG and Silicon Alley woman! Yeah, those early WG meetings were amazing. I was just so happy to meet other women who not only knew what the Internet was but actually had their very own web sites. Those were the days when personal web sites were just that - personal. Like blogs have become today. So many years ago...only about 10 but whose counting?

Yup, it's me and Katie. We have three kids now and live in San Mateo, CA. We have become domesticated. :)

On a strange side-note, and this is as good a place to mention as any, I emailed Clay Shary to say hi and he didn't respond. We were both 1998 entrepeneurs to watch in Silicon Alley Reporter! We had eggs! Where has the love gone?
