Shakers and Stirrers - published 5/2/97

CONGRATULATIONS were pealed out for the engagement of Jerry Michalski of EdVenture and Jennifer Weissman. The event was hosted by the gracious Emily Davidow at the lovely headquarters for Behome. Tery Spataro looked positively stunning in a black dress with big green flowers, Heather Champ graced the party with her cool sophisticated presence and Omar Wasow of New York Online led the men (including Alec Pollack, Samir Arora, Greg Elin, and David Blumenstein) in a debate over the 4 or 3 button suit coat.

Vladimir Lubel has just moved to Showtime from a long stint at Chapman Advertising . . . Contrary to the rumors, Buoyant has not merged with Spiral Media. What did happen though, was that Mitch Golden, (director of technology), Brad Justus (executive vice president) and Pall Walton (chief of production) left Buoyant and joined Spiral Media. There are also a number of Spiral Media employees who worked at Buoyant. However, Buoyant still exists as an independent entity . . . After several years at Citibank, Deb Schultz has made the move to independence with her new company, DRS Solutions specializing in Internet marketing, strategy, and development . . . Digital Pulp, agency of record to DoubleClickand BizTravel, has recently established an advanced technology division and moved to larger offices with a rooftop patio on 23rd street. Founder Steve Sacks is planning to hold weekly happy hours for the New York digerati on the roof beginning in early May. Look for Digital Pulp to make an announcement in the upcoming months.
