“As we approach the end of another year, we’re once again pleased to present the Silicon Alley 100, our annual list of the entrepreneurs, investors, executives, and technologists who are making waves in the New York digital business community.
Last year’s No. 1, Mayor Mike Bloomberg, has had his jersey retired (but we commend him for once again blazing entrepreneurial trails by doing away with annoying two-term rules). Union Square Ventures’ partner Fred Wilson, who hates lists like this, has deservedly taken his place.
Congratulations to this year’s winners and a hat tip to the impressive cadre of other folks we didn’t have room to recognize. As always, a huge thanks to our readers, whose votes and voices helped shape our second annual SA 100, and to our advertisers and sponsors, without whom we wouldn’t exist.”

I love Frank Addante because he is one of the only internet ad executives who looks younger than I do… I am not quite sure how old he actually is, but he definitely is NOT 18! We crossed paths briefly when I became CEO of a company he had earlier sold an ad server to.
In any case, I met with Frank a few weeks ago (he is founder and CEO of the Rubicon Project), and he is a great leader. This video is hysterical… enjoy!
Wall Street Meltdown… February 13, 2008Posted by Bill in video.
Over the holidays a friend of mine bought a new iMac, got creative, and went crazy. Here is his account and his subsequent video….
“After being a life-long PC user (and quietly disturbed by the implications of association with the PC guy), the Mac world seemed very new and exciting, though with a steep learning curve. I figured the best way to get to know the new software was with a project, so I acted on an idea for a parody based on the crisis on Wall Street this last year (yes, while a banker in my day job, I’m a frustrated comedian at heart). I created a video and posted it to YouTube. It has gained popularity rather rapidly and has been featured by NYT DealBook and over a dozen other blogs and media outlets.
Wall Street Meltdown chronicles the bizarre events as they unfolded in the deal market in 2007: from the raging M&A and private equity markets of the first half to the whole subprime/CDO disaster that has caused such a deep crisis on the street. I posted the video under a pseudonym (Lady McDuff is the name of my yellow lab).”
I hope you enjoy.
