Shakers & Stirrers -and- Bits & Bytes ~ 5/7/04

Conspiracy and collaboration are the themes for Alt Pick Magazine, published by Storm Editions, Inc. I got clued into this hip new pick from co-publisher and co-founder Juliette Wolf Robin. If this doesn’t whet your appetite, then check out their Second Annual AltPick Awards show, “Submit + Control.” If the meat-packing districts have gotten too bland for you too, then go to: for some titillating visuals!

Tristan Louis has informed us that took a slashdot hit: ... and survived! The story is here:

Gigex has acquired two independent content companies, GameDAILY, a daily newsletter for interactive entertainment professionals and, a destination site that provides news and resources for the (ahem) “hardcore” gaming community.  The new destination site is, and it’s all 100% FREE!

Congratulations are sent out to our fair and lovely Colette Ballou, who is a cette moment a Paris. Pourquoi? Parce que elle is engaged! (pardon my tres horrible francaise!) Ms. Ballou is the CEO/founder of Ballou Outsourced Public Relations, a company that helps high-tech companies that are entering new markets in Europe and the US with their PR. Living in Paris, formerly of SF & NYC, she had graced the offices of Edelman PR as a Veep and Audiobase as the director of PR. Her beau, the charmant M. Mathieu Lamotte is French, lives in Paris and is the co-founder of the competitive intelligence firm Insiders—and a very lucky man indeed!

Kevin Werbach  is gearing up for the next Supernova, which is June 24-25 in Santa Clara, CA.

Correction: Mary Lou Quinlan wasn't CEO of DDBNeedham, she was CEO of NW Ayer.
