Pointcast, Seybold

OTHER SOCIETY NOTES: ANOTHER ADVERTISING soiree this past week was a Pointcast party. While they demoed their new model for advertising on the net, I got a chance to catch up with Damon Torres, president & creative director of The I-way Company, Thomas Hespos of K-2 Design, and Myles Weissleder and Scott Heiferman of i-Traffic. Although I was a bit distracted by the absolutely fabulous-smelling Fred Wyatt of Talent Enterprises, Inc. in his cloud of Guerlain's Vetiver... . . . Seybold Last Saturday's Party at NV in Soho on April 24 was a mixed bag. I was initially greeted by some guy (wish I got his name now!) as he yelled after me for my plate of hor d'oevres. Fortunately, Samir Arora, CEO of NetObjects, rescued me. Emily Davidow of BeHome bubbled as Kamini Ramani from NetObjects put a sunflower hairband in her hair: "NetObjects. They not only manage your website, they manage your hair!" I also got to chat with Matthew Smith, President of Oakleaf Interactive Multimedia. ( Oakleaf is a service company that creates presentations so all your tired and weary HTML producers and project managers can focus on just doing their job, and not pulling an all-nighter for a presentation the next morning.
