Just Northeast of this event was a small soiree at Electronic Hollywood's offices. Co-Founder's Jamie Levy, Jordan Serlin, and Scott Alexander had cause to celebrate as Web TV's Steve Perlman joined them in forming a production company. Munching on a delicious spread of smoked salmon on pumpernickel, I met David Wyly, president of Pareto Financial Services, Inc. (wyly.com). His company helps people raise capital and "makes sure the investment is a win-win situation." Nearby were David Blumenstein (david.com) and Lara Stein (iXL.com), huddled around a computer. Lara looked quite spring-y in an all ivory suit and sandals and her little pup Jasper ran circles around her. Also at the small reception were Matt Toner (CanApple.org), Dan Sweeney (ad-venture.com), Oliver Harris (fortunecity.com), who were all excited about the prospect of EH's new prospects. I spied my friends Bonnie Halper (sendresume.com), Lori Schwab (uda.com), and Howard Greenstein (Microsoft.com and echonyc.com/~howard/). Cherry Arnold (who's now at Barnes & Noble) and Scott Heiferman (I-traffic) came out for the celebration as well. Jordan Serlin and I exchanged stories of summers in Lake George, he as a water-skiing instructor and me as an actress in summer stock. We played with the WebTV and got a tip from Sarah Lefton to sign up for the bikenewyork.org. Yes! After all this hard work and networking, its time to get out and exercise a bit!
